yeah, that picture is of a Tacoma, so it's not a bedliner, it's just the composite bed, with what looks like the official Toyota Tacoma rubber bed mat.

I had the bed rail on my Tacoma, but my Tundra didn't come with anything. I'm trying to decide between getting the normal bed rails, or just buying some L-track and making my own like motodave did. That's why I'm trying to see what other uses people have come up with for the OEM bed rail. I've never been too impressed by the normal cleats, although the Tundra cleats are much nicer than the Tacoma ones were, despite being excessively bulky. The L-track cleats seem much easier and quicker to mount/use, not to mention the size difference would make it much easier to toss 10 of them in my under seat storage box without taking up much room. I feel like I'm leaning towards the L-track for ease of use, but I always like to use original parts if I could so I'm hoping to see enough uses for the Toyota bed rails to make me think it's a better option.

It has been like this for a while now. I haven't ordered because of that.

I ended up finding them on Grainger, and ordering some through them.

I had some brackets made up to move my front rail above my BakFlip so I could fork mount 3 bicycles across on top of the cover. The brackets are secured using the existing BakFlip hardware. It isn't mounted in the picture as I had removed it for the winter months (just until a FatBike is added to my collection). The middle mount is bolted to the top of the rail to raise the middle bike and avoid handle bar interference with either bike on the side.

The mounts are lockable and made by RockyMounts.

Two days! Apparently the word is out that they fit bed rails.

That's right... It's an 14' with a foot print gas pedal and a Hurst speed shifter with a pool-ball grip.

I believe McMaster sells those T-nuts too. Last time I ordered from them the package arrived the next day.

Those look convenient. Wonder how much weight he's planning on putting in there. Makes me a little uneasy. I don't think I'd trust the rails to hold that kind of weight. Every time you hit a bump it's going to want to twist the rail downward. Maybe once he gets that front rail mounted he can put a bolt or two through the front to help with the twisting force.

Someday I'm going to have to come up with some type of in-bed storage. Right now I have the underseat storage box, and it's great, but I realized a little bit ago but eventually when I need to put a car seat or two in the back seat I'll lose the option to flip my seats up, and will lose the only storage space I have in the cab.

I am getting a new 15 Dbl cab next week, and I know I dont have the rails on the new one, but I do on the 08 I am trading in...I am debating if I should pull them or not....for the new one. It adds cost to the tonnoeau cover I am looking at, so I may not, and just use what is available in the bed.

Take them off! The dealer isn't gonna give you extra for them. Might as well hang on to them.

For like $95/piece from Toyota. I have just regular Yakima ones in my front rail...found a write up on here on how to attach them to the bed rail with washers. 2 Yakima mounts and all hardware for $50. But the ones I got didn't lock, so that is a difference. I'll gladly pay 1/4 the cost for 2 and have them not lock. I am a bit sketchy when I go somewhere after riding. My Spec. mtb I don't worry about too much. But my Guru road bike I don't like to leave in the mount unlocked. Gotta keep my eye on that one.
