    Has anyone tried to mount these to the stock roof rack holes on a 2011 Tacoma DC? I've installed them before, but don't want to drill through my roof if I don't have to, and don't want to use the foot pack. Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum :wave:
    I have not seen anyone post on using the track TP42.
    I do have pics of someone who used the TK1 kit in the factory holes. They just put holes in the oem strip, screwed the kit to factory holes. Clipped the towers on when they wanted the rack setup.
    the pics (not my truck)

    Anyway here is a bump in case someone has added a track.

    Do you know if the factory holes lined up with the tk1? I already have those from my car. Thanks for the help!

    The pic I posted is from a guy over at TN. I will see if I can find the post and link it here. He used the factory holes under the rubber strip like in the pics.

    He shows pics of his truck using that kit on his tacoma for ladders. He didn't drill any holes to the best of my memory.
    Also I just use a clamp thule rack w/ a fairing. I think the 400 towers w/ fit kit. Been on the truck for 4+ yrs now. No issues but understand what you are trying to do too. Good luck :)
