    Hey, what is under the black plastic strips on the roof of a 2011 Tacoma Access cab? Do they come off? Are there factory threaded inserts on the access cabs? I was looking at a Baja Rack. Dave

    Access cabs have sheet metal and a couple clips to hold the black rubber trim on, no nuts for a roof rack. yes they come off, there is no reason to remove them.

    There has been a couple of guys here who have done a mod on the access cab to fit the factory racks, so there may be some answers here as to what can be done.
