    Ok, I’ve searched the forums and did not find any posts regarding this. Has anyone tried to mount a stock 2nd Gen roof rack onto a truck shell like a Leer 100XQ or similar? I know the stock Tacoma roof rack has a curve to it (front to back) or at least it looks like it does. I like the looks of the Tacoma roof rack more than the ones offered by Leer or others.
    Thanks

    I'm fairly confident your not going to be able to do this. Typically racks attach to shells via holes going all the way through the roof. Of course that's not the way the factory one attaches. I would think the factory one would be way too short tooo, unless you're talking about a shortbed cap.

    I think you'd have a hell of a time with fitment. Of course it can be done but you'd end up modding the rack and/or the cap to make everything sit flush. The racks on the double cabs look nice because they follow the curvature of the roof line. That being said, I don't think it'll look good. I'd look for an aftermarket alternative that was meant for a cap.

    I bought a rack from a mini van and it mounted right up
    Not heavy duty ,but it looks and works good enough
    You can cut the rails to desired length

    Oh man I was so hoping that I would get a reply saying someone did it and it works great. :( I guess I'll step back and rethink what I want.
