Has anyone ever installed a rack on the bed rails? I'm thinking of a roof rack style but bolted to the bed rails instead of a roof. That way I can have a truxedo installed and have the best of both going on. Just a thought, but it may work out nicely.

I carry surfboards around and a rack across the back may just be the ticket.

Also, how far does something need to be sticking out the back before it legally needs to be flaged? (some of my boards are 9' and 10' ers)

Thanks all!

Yeah, that's the idea. Screw the rack to the bed rail instead of the roof. Any tips on how to get that done properly?

check Toyotas parts catalogue, I believe they make the mounts that will let you use Yakima crossbars. You should even be able to slide the mounts to wherever you want in the tracks...there are pics somewhere on the main toyota page for the Tacoma...
