    Hello, I have been reviewing rack options for my 09 Taco. I will be hauling up to 4 boats on the rack, so the stocker just won't work. I have been looking at Yakima, Thule, Rhino Rack, Inno Racks, etc. While researching the permanent tracks, I found this video on the Yakima Landing Pad install. In the video they utilize the mounting holes in the channel underneath the rubber channel strip. Although a different vehicle, I was wondering if the same could be done on the Tacoma?

    Thanks,

    Mike,

    Did you find a landing pad that will work?

    Musty, I ended up going with a clip on rack. I contacted Yakima and inquired about utilizing the stock rack holes under rain gutter, and they indicated that it is possible with certain make/models of vehicles. However, the 2nd gen toyota is not one of those make/models..

    I ended up going with a rhinorack with aero bars. Good load capacity, and best bang for the buck. "Assuming that they last the test of time"
