    Hey guys, I'm new to the site and just bought a '10 dbl cab 4x4. Apparently toyota discontinued the bike rack attachment for the bed rails not really sure why. I am looking for two of them but wanna see if I can get them cheaper than ebay or the other online stores. Thanks! :D

    Food for thought, you can always customize.

    Yea thanks! I was looking through a bike website and saw that same one for like ten bucks. I'm not really too clear on how to mount it to the bed rail. Did you just drill vertically through it then slide bolts through?

    It's a real easy install. I have two on my truck. Position the transporter where you want it on the bedrail. Mark your spots and drill straight through, install and tighten your nut and bolt. You can mout three on the bedrail.

    ^ what he said.
    I'm using my light bar with pre-drilled holes that I'm attaching the bike mount to. I didn't have to make any holes on the bed, but I have seen a lot of others mount the bike mount as mentioned above.

    Go with the rocky mounts! I have the Toyota bike attachments and am not very happy with them. Not to mention they were like 50 bucks a pop.

    got 2 bike attachments shipped for $21. Got 2 pieces of aluminum 1/4" thick x 1" wide, drilled and tapped them and installed with stainless steel 1 1/4" long allen head bolts which are 1/4 x 20 thread.

    Hey I am in Cypress, TX (Houston) and I have recently sold my mountain bikes. Id be willing to part with these for $50. If you are interested send me a message and I will get you some pictures. They are in good condition (have some wear on them from use and the Houston climate) but working. They are locking and I have the key. Just let me know if you are interested. Thanks

    They sure look nice, but that price is outrageous . PerformanceBike.com or the Store much more reasonable.

    Just get a cheap one with two bolt holes and then get some washers that fit just right into the bed rail.
