I was thinking of ordering these. Has anyone tried to get 4 bikes in with these? 2 Road/2 Mountain.
If you had the rail cross bar you could mount two bike mounts on it near the end of the bed and have 4 bikes together. Two facing forward, two facing backwards. If you had them all facing the same direction the handlebars would probably all get in the way of each other.

I've also thought about using Torx head bolts, as it's even less likely that someone would have a Torx driver handy when they thought about snagging the Rocky Mounts from my truck.



--Eric
Have you seen these in stores or would you have to order online? I went to my local Lowe's and they didn't carry torx bolts only torx screws. I'll have to check Home Depot next time I'm near one.

1 inch fender washers are a must for this mount the bolt that comes with it is shaped like an oval and is easily dislodged from the rail with some side-to-side force. When testing it I noticied that some of the paint on the mounts was coming off from the rubbing. So I decided to make one more small addition to the mounting hardware, a small rubber washer between the mount and the rail.



It also makes it feel slightly tighter and it only cost about 75 cents for two
