Tuff Stuff Rooftop Tent Truck Bed Rack, Adjustable, Powder Coated, Black 51"
The Tuff Stuff® 51" bed rack is ideal for use with most roof top tents and truck beds. Their bed rack is designed to universally install directly on top of any truck bed rail using our provided pinch plates.
Due to this rack being universal (not made for any specific vehicle) they have included custom pinch plates that will pinch the inner lip of your bed rails. This allows the installation to be performed without drilling holes into the bed rails. The bed rack WILL NOT FIT if there has been a tonneau cover, or any other accessories installed that affects the inner walls of the bed rails. Their rack uses a unique sliding center rail which allows the rack to be installed on various widths of beds from full-size Ford F350’s to mid-size Toyota Tacoma’s.
For Toyota Tacoma using the factory installed cargo rail system, our rack will perfectly align with your rail and would require the use of custom T-nuts that can accept 3/8″ diameter bolts. These can be purchased for an additional $99 for 8pcs - VIEW HERE.
NOTE: 1st generation Ford Raptor beds have no lip to attach the rack to, so you will have to use nut-inserts, self-drilling screws, or anchors to install the rack on the bed.
