    Hey guys,
    I have a 2007 4x4 access cab, and am looking to put a rack on the back over the bed. Is there anyway to attach Thule rack into the existing bedrails and then I can put my ski racks on that?
    I know there has got to be a way, but I can't figure it out.
    Please help!!!
    Thanks.

    you could either buy or make some cross bars that attach to the anchors for the side rails
    I heard someone on here saying that the cross bars were discontinued but I don't think it would be that hard to make some.

    i think the thing would be the weight capacity of the toyota bed crossbars. looks to me that they took the bed rail from the front of the truck and made a bracket to fit the bed cleats. those dont look like they'd support oo much weight across the span of the width of the bed

    yeah I believe (not 100% sure... more like 95) that they drill holes thought the little cleats off to each side on the anchor and bolt the cross bars to that.
