    Has anybody bought one of the racks that lock into the cargo/rail system? Any reviews/ input appreciated.

    I would be curious too. A guy I work with who has a '06 2wd taco, ended up making his own rack for his kayak out of some PVC pipe. I don't know exactlly how he did it but he said because of the way the bed was, there was nothing else that work work with the composite bed.

    If anybody knows of anything please do tell and I'll pass it on to the guy I work with.

    I'd also be interested in a rack that could be added without having to drill into the bed.

    There are 2 models that I've looked at on Ebay, one looks like brushed aluminum, and the other powder coated aluminum. One says it's rated for 750 lbs, and 350 for the other. They both look really slick, they sit on the bed rails, secured by the rail.

    That rack looks like a great way-to-go. Do you have to buy proprietary accessories, i.e., ski racks or canoe/kayak saddles, or would other brands like Yakima work? The reason I ask is that I've got an old Yakima system, the bases of which no longer fit on any vehicle I own, but the attachements are all still very useable. They need to attach to round/circular tubes, I'm thinking around 1 1/4" diameter, but will have to double check that.
