    Yeah that should work for you. Mine is 63" in length. So you should be good but I'd measure your bed before buying.

    I had gotten a used one, inside the rail it's a hair over 56 inches wide. You need it to overlap on to the top of the truck fender bed. Here is a picture of the plastic used one I got from craigslist a little too short. Think it was off a first generation Tacoma truck.

    I have the midsize kobalt/betterbuilt tool box from lowes. The packaging even had a picture of a tacoma on it.

    Two 1/4" j bolts, one on each side, hooked to the rail. And wing nuts for faster removal.
