Looking for an extremely durable, simple to install/remove, bed cover compatible, cross bar system for the bed of your 2nd or 3rd Gen Toyota Tacoma? Look no further than this incredible system from BillieBars.
Designed and fabricated in PA; their goal was to design a set of Tacoma bed bars that work with a tonneau cover and create the strongest most versatile mounting system for your truck. The thought was to have a universal design to mount anything from roof top tents, bikes, skis & snowboards, surfboards, lights, CB antennas, and more in any fashion the owner wants. Mount these crossbars to your bed with or without a tonneau cover.
WHATS INCLUDED (2 bars, 4 brackets, and hardware):
Cross bars are made from 80mmx40mm (3.15” wide x 1.57” tall) 6560-T6 aluminum double wide t-slot rails and anodized black. There are two slots top and bottom and one front and back, for a total of 6 t-slots per cross bar. All the t-slots run the length of the bar, so you can mount anything anywhere. The cross bars utilize drop in t-slot hardware (links below) and supplied by us. Typical t-slot nuts will accommodate an M8-1.25 thread and slide perfectly to any location you need.
Uprights are laser cut from a high strength steel, CNC bent, then TIG welded and powder coated in a durable black wrinkle finish. The uprights mount directly to the Tacoma bed rail system using supplied t-nuts and high strength zinc coated hardware.
All external hardware is high strength stainless steel. There are 4 security bolts (TT40 bit) that hold each cross bar to the upright. Just remove the bolts to the bars and the cover can flip open with the uprights still mounted. These bolts also use stainless aerospace lock washers, so nothing comes loose and no need for Loctite.
