Where to find bed rails?

    2005 Access Cab 2.7
    I just became the proud owner of a 2005 access cab 2.7L. One of the first cosmetic orders of business is to get a topper. I have the plastic caps on the top of the bed and no real lip underneath the body of the bed to use a c-clamp. My idea is to use the bed rails to mount the topper. However, my new to me truck did not come with any bed rails.

    No big deal, accept I cant seem to find where to buy a set of the bed rails themselves. The internet is awash with cleats/accessory/tie down options, but for the life of me I can find where to buy a set of the actual rails themselves.

    Anyone know where I can purchase a set of actual rails?

    Thanks

    If you want something like the 2nd gen. Tacoma has try the Part Out Guy. He may have something that you could use.
    Or, maybe L-track would work. Not sure how that would work with a shell. But there may be possibilities.

    Thanks Dr. I'm going to keep looking for some stock ones, but if they just aren't out there I'm sure I could rig something up with those L-track's. I'm surprised the tracks are hard to find, but I'm new to the Tacoma world. Maybe it's just my searching abilities.

    I'm not sure about mounting the topper but if you're looking for the track rails that I believe come stock on most if not all TRD's, here are the part numbers for the rails themselves:

    Side Rails (qty. two, one per side): 24066 65335 YY040.
    Back Rail (qty. one): 85133 YY020 24065.

    I don't have any part numbers for the mounting hardware though, or have looked for any instructions on how to install/retrofit.

    Hope this helps a little.

    Sorry to revive this from the (mostly) dead. DL650, I have the same issue as you when I bought my 2006 Access Cab used from a reputable national retailer. The set of 4 cleats is brand new, still in plastic, but no rails on the inside edge of the bed to attach them to. I'm also looking for a camper shell, and to my limited knowledge, the rails are needed to clamp the shell to the bed. I forget where I found these part numbers...probably in the depths of TW...but they are different from what Davids540i posted (not sure if his are specific to TRD models). Here's what I have:

    PT278-35100-LB for the left side and right side rails for the long bed. You'll need to order two, one for each side. $45.80 from my local stealership parts guy. Replace the "LB" with "SB" for short bed models.
    PT278-35100-BH for the front rail that attaches close to the cab...for both long and short bed models. $45.57 from the stealership.

    You can get both of these online for cheaper as long as you don't mind ordering from a random website. As far as hardware for attaching the rails to the bed, it beats me. Stealership parts guy claims "Any hardware that is required is either on the truck already or is included." which is the laziest response from someone who doesn't want to look up the part numbers for the hardware. I'm highly doubting that these rails come with hardware to attach them.
