    Anyone know where I can get the Toyota fork attachment for my bike (Trek 6500)? I've read off and on that they aren't made anymore, but I thought I remembered it being still advertised through Toyota's catalog. My local dealer hasn't been any help yet. Didn't see it on TRDparts4u.com or anything. I know there are other options, which I am open to, but I don't want to drill or do anything to the front rail, which is why I was leaning towards the Toyota one. I just want one I can put on the rail and go. Thanks.

    Find an aftermarket fork mount and rig to fit inside your bed rails. Thats what I did and only costed me $12. I think there is a thread about this somewhere.

    The toyota one is listed as an option on the "build your own tacoma" link on the factory website. You can get the part number there and just order it from the dealer parts dept. It would be much cheaper to buy a generic one and mount it to the rail using a creative arrangement of bolts, carriage bolts, washers etc. that are slid in from the end of the rail and cause no damage to the rail.

    Thanks for the replies. Last I heard the Toyota one was about $40, and in that thread it looks like it cost anywhere from $20 to $30 to fab one up. For the time it would take (I'm not experienced with fabrication) and the quality, if the Toyota one is available and works as well, I'll go that route. I was just wondering if anyone knew of any sites to order it off of.
