I called Thule and they thought they may be machined wrong. I'm waiting for another set to arrive this week.
One was so tight that I had to use a rubber mallet and the other 3 moved freely.

Its still tight but its probably better than loose. I didnt have enough time to finish the install and hopefully i don't run into anything. I am attaching image of what i did. Please let me if this is some how a bad idea. Thank you.

Image 1: shows it can't fit.
Image 2: what i shaved off the clamps.
Image 3: fitting tight after i shave it.
Image 4: comparing shaved clamp to unshaved.
looks good to me.

interested in the locking system, wonder if they make them for XK2s.

I don't think the XK2 has a locking system. Not by Thule anyways. It requires its own bolt. So 2 total.

Very nice. Looks factory.

Related question: Has anyone cut the vertical supports to make them shorter? I need to cut the two rear vertical supports so they will fit properly around my side mounted toolbox.

I've got the newer Thule xsporter pro, bought about 5 years ago and a new 2016 TRD pro tundra. After reading this thought it would work on my application. Picked up the XK3 Thule "Tacoma" adapter. Followed the instructions and ground down the edge. Didn't even come close to working on my rig, both with and without the rubber pad under the rack (between the bed rail and rack). Just threw away $50.

Sucks...
