    New to TW. Just purchased a 2017 Tacoma long bed. I was hoping to use my thule Xsporter..rack from my old truck (ford) seems to be some adapters out there due to the small bed lip. Didn't know if anyone here had similar racks. Thanks.

    Probably call Thule directly.

    I bought a tracrac in 2016, and needed clamps to attach to the 3rd gen rails. Called Thule/Tracrac and they gave me the spec.

    I know the hardware for the Thule is slightly different, here is the general idea though.

    Good luck.

    My kit came with 8, the kit i listed also comes with 8 brackets. you need two brackets per per post so one kit should be sufficient.

    Just 4 total per post two for each side. Thule includes the generic C clamp for other models in case you have to move your rack to a different truck.

    One kit is still sufficient.

    Turns out my rack is the older version, not the xsporter pro. Mine has dovetailed groove rather than the clip going over the rack base. Having difficulty finding a fit for the older model
