HI,

I'm doing some research on the best multi-purpose roof carrier for a Tacoma 4x4 that has a topper. I'm mostly interested in carrying a 9ft dagger max possibly also skis/snowboards.

What experience have you had with your setup?
Where did you get it fitted?
Did you get it fitted to the topper or the cab?
Anything to look out for?
Is Yakima or Thule better?

Any recommendations or experience would appreciated?

Thanks
Connor

questions for you

What are your price considerations?
You have two choices.
1) Custom rack as suggested above. It will fit around the topper, be made of steel and attach to the bed itself.
2) Drill either fake raingutters or sliding tracks into the topper and install an after-market rack ala Yakima or Thule. My experience is that Yakima is superior in customer service and parts availabliity. I also think they happen to be constructed and engineered better but that's an opinion.

What other questions?

Custom is the way to go. You start using Yak/Thule on a truck and you will no doubt overload it. Try "Meeker Fabrications" in Durango 970-946-7505.

or option 3: put the yakima rack on the top, then add a custom step on the side that is screwed onto the top of your bed, sandwiched between the bed and your topper. this way, if you want to take off your racks, you can do so easily, you have a step to stand on to tie boats down, and i also use the step to tie my bike on...just another thought....
