    Hey y’all! So I’m trying to get this clusterfuck figured out. So I ordered a Body Armor sport rack system (TC- 6124) to serve as storage as well as a way to mount my 4 KC lights. The part came , and turns out it was only half of the system that I needed . So I go back on to the site and it also requires part TC-5129 which is the Body Armor cab basket /cab rack (the part the lights actually mount to) and that part says it won’t fit my 2019. But the sport rack half of the system DOES fit, and the two parts go together . Super confusing on the websites behalf. So what it looks like from the measurements provided on the site(since I havnt ordered the cab basket part) is that the reason it won’t fit a 2019 is because of the shark fin antenna is too tall and there’s a bar for the rack that would run into it . SO - I guess where I go from here is to figure out if I can cut the antenna down to fit ?! Or Just scratch the whole rack system in general and eat it on the part that I bought since the website is requiring an expensive restocking fee to return it?!!! I’m fairly new at this so any advice would be helpful , especially anyone that’s familiar with this Body Armor rack system .

    @MESO makes a replacement antenna, sold by https://www.uptopoverland.com/collections/tacoma/products/uptop-thinfin. Alternatively, Go Rhino makes some roll bars that you can mount the lights to-https://www.gorhino.com/Bed-Accessories. Also Black Horse Offroad has some nice roll bars- https://blackhorseoffroad.com/c-1289329-products-roll-bars.html. One other thing to take consideration is whether or not you have a tonneau cover. Some of these bars are compatible with tonneau cover, while others are incompatible. Also some may require drilling into the bedside, others mount to the bed rails. You got options. Good luck!

    Thankyou! Seems like I should just ditch the BodyArmor stuff altogether since they seem like they’re not very reliable with fitment . Appreciate the help!
