    For the 2017 tacoma there are 2 Threaded holes on the bed rail beneath the rear window. Anyone know what these holes are for? I'd like to use them to mount a bike rack to since I do not have a front rail system. What you the size be?

    Those holes are for the OEM tonneau cover. There's a small bracket that goes there if you have the OEM cover.

    Also myself and many folks have added the 2nd gen front rail with no issues. I suggest you do that. The bolts are already there, just buy the rail ~ 50 bucks.

    Try your local dealer. Price was as good as I could get it shipped to me for from somewhere else.

    PT278-35100-BH

    It was something like $34 or so.

    Doesn't come with the plastic end caps; I've not missed them but will probably pick some up one day.
