Whether it be rifles, bicycles, or kayaks, the important thing to remember is to mount all your gear securely. Rifle mounts are essential if you’re planning to go hunting. The Tacoma can be equipped with rifle mounts and gun racks depending on the type of firearm. You should also consider a bed storage case that can essentially transform into a neat gun rack for your hunting gear and ammunition.
The best place to mount a bicycle rack is in the bed of your Tacoma. If you’re looking to save a bit of cash, installing a tailgate pad is a more economical option. Bicycle racks or bed racks come in a wide array of shapes and sizes. Some mods will even allow you to mount up to four bicycles in the bed!
However, there’s a catch. Not all truck bed mounts/racks are made the same. Some will require drilling holes in the bed of your Tacoma, while there are those with lightweight and modular designs that can be installed with no drilling required.
The standard bed length in a Tacoma double cab is 60.5-inches. The Tacoma access cab has 73.7-inches of bed space. With a bed height of approximately 19.1-inches and 41.5-inches of width, it is safe to assume you’ll have plenty of options in choosing the best racks, mounts, and storage cases for your Toyota Tacoma.
