    How is it possible to install a ladder rack (can also be used for canoes and kayaks) on an 08 trd 4x4 long bed. The bed rails don't have the slots and I DO NOT want to drill into my truck. Any suggestions? Taking a 4hr. trip w/ my kayak and I want to carry it this way. Thanks.

    PS-If anybody has some good pictures for an alternative means please send 'em my way. Thanks again.

    I plan to build this for my short bed DC and mount directly to the bed bolts on the floor. (I changed the design for the front mounts since I did this model. All 4 points will bolt to the bed bolts) The rear top crossbar is removable.[​IMG]

    What material will these be made of? Can you guessimate shipping to the east coast? I love the design, looks awsome and would be very interested.
