    Hey all
    New here and new to Tacomas - just bought my first. I am looking for a rear rack to hang lumber on instead of resting it on my tailgate. I have a headache rack in front. They make them for Tundras but can't find for Tacoma. Please suggest ideas. thanks

    I use half of a tracOne rack (was 300 at home depot when I bought it, looks like 350ish now) at the tailgate end. You can cut the uprights to any length and re-tap the holes to adjust the height to match.

    You also need the Tacoma 2016+ adapters (about $60). I recommend swapping out the bolts that clamp at the rail for some shorter stainless ones....

    I don't normally keep it on, but I can install it by myself in about 10 minutes total. It isn't super strong, but ample for a couple of kayaks or a bit of 2x12 lumber
