    I am looking for a factory rack with all included hardware for the 2nd gen Tacoma. Dealerships don't carry them anymore and claim the 3rd gen fitment is different now and parts numbers are different. I have looked at the knockoff racks and am frankly concerned about fitment.

    Looking for an OEM rack for a second gen, preferable used. I'd also be interested if anyone found a knock-off rack they were satisfied with that did not have gaps or fitment issues. Thanks!

    Let me be clear on this as I just went through this two weeks ago the OEM roof rack that the parts guy in the Toyota dealership says that will not fit is actually the same part number for the second gens, I purchased this and put it on my truck without issues and it fit perfectly

    Pro tip: put a large dollop of acrylic sealer on each roof bolt hole going in when you install your rack else you’ll get leaks.

    Perfect timing! Looking into getting a roof rack for my '14. Most of the Amazon "Oem" racks look sketchy at best. Most likely wouldn't trust the weight ratings on them either.

    do you have to drill into your roof for OEM roof racks too?

    Search “OEM Tacoma roof rack” on EBay lots pop up. And as an owner of one I’ll say the functionality of the rack is not all that great and yeah definitely seal the holes well mine leaked initially.

    No. Under the weather stripping there are 4 screw holes covered with black tape stuff
    No drilling just screw in

    Replace the hardware with stainless steel. The crap they give you in the box strips easily and it is infuriating. Also the bolt that holds the passenger side arm together has a backing plate hidden at the bottom. If you’re not careful you can knock this loose and then have to take the whole damn thing off.

    Unfortunately, this does not yield many actual OEM results, just knockoffs. Best bet is to call your local parts department and get them in a bidding war with other dealerships. I hate the dealership model, wish it could be factory direct with parts and cars.

    If you want a roof rack for looks or a couple kayaks, go OEM. If you need functionality get an aftermarket one. Like @Geeves77 said, weight rating is paltry plus the usable width is pretty narrow.

    Agreed. Trying to determine whether to buy an OEM or make my own on the CNC machine with the plans posted on this site. I haul a good bit of lumber and trying to determine needs vs. cosmetics at this point.

    I bought a Chinese knock-off of the OEM for $99 on eBay fit was ok - not perfect - for my light use purposes- the occasional canoe - it is fine - but I must say I think all roof racks on Tacomas are ugly

    The people I know that have had them, hate the noise. I'm sure you can find them used.
