    Afternoon,

    I am getting mixed answers to whether or not the OEM Toyota Roof Rack PT278-35170 will fit the new 2021’s...

    One dealer thinks it will and another says no. Searching online parts I get the “will not fit your model” notification.

    Anyone here put this on their new Taco?

    I’m new here, glad to have found this forum. Loving my 2021 SR5 V6 in Cement with all the technological bells and whistles!

    TIA

    There was an issue with the shark fin placement with the 2020's, I don't know if it extends to the 2021's or not.

    I'm fairly certain it will. The early 2020s had the shark fin placed where it interfered. Later production fixed it. I have it on my 20 OR and it just clears.

    I believe that is what happened too, once they changed mid-year it fixed the interference issue.

    That rack is garbage. Pay a bit more for something better or I will haunt you everytime you want to use it.

    @VictorInTexas,
    I have a couple emails out to discount part outlets asking about the OEM roof rack for a 2021 DCLB Off Road, I had to send them my VIN. I should hear back from them today, I’ll let u know...

    Is this normally a dealer installed option? I've finally got an allocation after waiting 6 weeks and it's not showing up on the build sheet.

    Yes but you’ll save about $100 doing it yourself

    Yes,I installed the OEM rack on my 2008 Tacoma... easy install, just make sure you use automotive silicone on the bolts.

    Seal, as I was installing mine I figured why not add some silicone to the protruding bolts. It never leaked and I have read posts where the installer didn’t use silicone and eventually it leaked
