    I saw a thread where people had bicycle forrk mounts for these holesBIKE FORK.jpg. But i have not been able to locate the fork mounts anywhere. Its none of the main ones you see for sale. These holes are about 2.5 inches apart. If they dont exist then i guess i should just drill into this bar instead? What do you think?

    You need to buy the front header rail for the bed. They are like $50 on Amazon and this is what most fork mounts use. You just unscrew the five bolts just under where you are currently looking and it installs there.

    Add a front accessory rail and then you can use any of the mounts made to use the rail or you can fab something up yourself. I use the lo-ball from rocky mount. (Currently mounted on my cargo divider, the extra bit of height allows my 29r to fit in the bed with the tailgate closed.

    El Burro has the answer for you. I put the front rail on mine, bought a couple of "Rocky Mounts" locking fork mounts and some T-nuts to fasten them to the rail with and it has worked fine for the last 4 years.

    I dont wanna spend 60+ dollars on the rail and the fork mounts. Is it possible to just drill the fork mounts into the truck below the window? Is there a special procedure for doing this? Thanks for all the replys

    So not quite as nice as what others here have posted, but I bought a couple cheap fork mounts from Amazon and screwed them to a 2x8 board. Whenever I want to go ride I can just toss the 2x8 into the bed (towards the tailgate) and mount the bike to it.

    I've used it a dozen times so far without any issues. I've yet to see the bikes move at all as I'm driving around.

    I have a picture from my first test drive in which I used the board at the front of the bed. Since then I put the board towards the tailgate so that if I brake extremely hard the bikes don't pivot forward into the window. Not sure if that would happen - but I figure better safe than sorry.

    Edit: I should note I did this because I wanted to ride but wasn't sure how I wanted to mount the bikes. So this temporary solution has served me well the last few weeks.
