If you have a custom or partially-custom system, what setup(s) you run (basket/etc.), and your experience with your choice will help too. I'm familiar with most of the common stuff. So far it seems my options are Inno's Truck Stays (RT101/102-used this stuff a bunch for Tacoma Customers), Yakima's BedRock (Bonus is it all locks down), and Thule's (Does Thule Even Offer anything for this anymore?!). Since my truck has the dual exhaust I'm not down to keep using my Thule T-2. Seen too many cooked tires lately.


Lay it on us. I didn't see this topic yet and figured "Why Not?".

My needs are as follows as far as the overall stuff we take on trips:

Must Carry Bikes/Riding/Camping/Fishing/RaceSupport Gear.
Basket or Box for all that and anything else that will fit.
Be able to mount a Canoe if other gear stowed below cross bars in the bed.
+If it's a week trip to the Lakes, Desert, or a Race not interfere with towing a trailer.

Some of the inspiration I've found: Yakima bed rails and cargo basket. - DodgeTalk.com

This one uses the Yakima Landing Pad 6's with Control Towers. No rails to move setup.
Drilled through the plastic bed cap and metal.



This one uses the BedRock Mounts.



Phylodog's setup. IIRC also using the BedRocks: Help finding a Roof Basket w/ Kayak holder


Another idea to keep the poles from bouncing around the bed.




*I'm not loyal to any one manufacturer's setups, just what works best for my specific vehicle and needs at the time.
