    So if I had a prinsu cab rack, would this bed rack sit flush with the cab rack so boards and ladders would sit flat straight across the entire top?

    Yeah! That’s how I designed it! It’s sold though. Stay tuned for the aluminum version I’ll be releasing soon

    On top of everything else, i'm looking at fender flares since mine are broken from my front bumper.

    Ebay is great, except that every fender flare I can find is for a long bed.

    This is the only one i've found for a short bed, and the photos don't even match (different flares in the photos) https://www.ebay.com/itm/For-05-11-...Tacoma&hash=item5b3fae1c48:g:uwEAAOSwNZxcbhvn

    Still love my short bed over a long bed lol

    I have all my OEM flare and have no desire to put them back on. I would imagine the fronts are the same, and you can have them if you want.

    Or you could try plastic welding yours back together, and repainting them

    I had a very similar issue recently... I was more specifically looking for shortbed knock off bushwackers... not sure why but like 95% of every one for a shortbed I could find have the ugly lumps on them and I much preferred the smooth style with recessed bolt holes... finally thought I had found a set as that's what the pictures showed and when they showed up they were the lumpy kind... I returned them and bought these and they are good.

    https://m.ebay.com/orderDetails?itemId=131840155820&txnId=1563979359003


    Not the cheapest, but I was determined to avoid the lumpy ones. They just look a little hokey imo... also FWIW I have had a set on my truck for the last two years and no cracks, truck spends alot of time on dirt roads. Mine are trimmed a couple inches and have the trim-lock edge trim that may save them from flinging rocks

    they arent bad to mend if you have a soldering iron. From the inside cut yourself like a one inch peice of paperclip straightened out. Place it over the crack so that it spans it acting as a support. now take your soldering iron and place it directly on the paperclip. Heat it up enough till is buries itself into the plastic and wala. Its not stronger then it was before. I used to do this alot on my samurai 30 year old plastics did not like to be bumped into things

    I might take you up on that! the fronts are whats the worst on mine!


    OOF! i'm not on 35's (yet) so i'd imagine i'll have a little bit more clearance than you, also, love your build my dude.

    Thanks for the link! Unfortunately i get this :(

    I agree, I like the smooth ones better though. the lumpy ones look extra cheap. I like the look of @Chux and @geekhouse23 's fender flares


    hmm, i should try this sometime!
