Does it work with bed covers?
Any cover where the structure or the cover itself extends more than 3/16" or so over the tops of the bed rails isn't going to work. We've had good luck running the Access Roll-Up covers in both the vanish and the original. You will need to trim the bottom of the mounting rails of the cover where they go over the rack mounts inside and add some extra gasket material for a good seal. Rolling it up is possible with both heights, but it's really a PITA on the shorter rack, so take this into account. A quick video about this coming soon.
How much weight does it handle?
It's stronger than the bed of the truck, but unfortunately, we don't have an official load rating on these kinds of force on that. We've ran this design loaded down with an RTT, hi-lift, shovel, axle, and mountain bikes on trails all over the country without issues. We do recommend running our bed stiffeners with this setup for additional strength: Tacoma Bed Stiffeners
What do I do about the blocked high mount stop lamp?
There are holes on this rack to accept an aftermarket led brake light on the rear of the rack.

Q Ryan Ferrier • 03/25/2020, 10:20:08 PM What is the overall length of this rack? the inside measurement of my bed is only 59"
A 04/06/2020, 1:46:00 PM Overall length is around 57" for the short bed and 69" for the long bed. The mount center lines are about 13" less than these dimensions respectively. For more details please contact us at [email protected]
Q Chris Miller • 04/20/2020, 2:09:45 PM Any adapters to outfit the half rack version on a 2017 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 5ft bed with the Utili-Track System?
A 04/20/2020, 3:13:59 PM Nothing at this time. If you contact us, we can help with any measurements if you want to attach this yourself.
Q Triston Huff • 04/28/2020, 12:42:24 PM Where did you get/ dor you offer, the mountainbike rack system?
A 04/28/2020, 1:46:27 PM Our part VBR-BM is designed to hold a fork mount and your rear tire. We recommend the Rocky Mounts Driveshaft HM.
Q Ben Martin • 04/30/2020, 5:53:52 AM Will the long bed rack mount to the short bed for full coverage like the kb voodoo rack? I’ve got the xl smittybuilt tent and need as much rack under the tent as I can get.
A 04/30/2020, 2:48:16 PM The longer rack will not fit on the short bed. We made the bars as stretched as possible on the short bed while still keeping as much strength as possible.
Q Michael R. Smith • 05/08/2020, 0:43:14 AM If I were to order the taller version of the bed rack and the roof rack would they be the same height in relationship to each other? I am looking to have a rack system that allows me to load items that will need the length of the short bed in addition to the length of the double cab.
A 05/11/2020, 2:36:52 PM No, but adding our universal cargo basket on top of the bed rack will make them similar heights.

Received my mid-size bed rack a little less than a month ago and I am extremely happy with my purchase. Install was easy and I enjoyed taking the time to put it together. Was able to secure my RTT with ease. Highly recommend Victory 4x4 products. Can’t wait to make my next purchase from Victory 4x4 for my Tacoma in the near future.

This rack is great. Easy install. If you loved Erector Sets as a kid you will love this rack. All sorts of mounting options for accessories. The rack actually sits ON top of the bed (while beinf secured to the bed rails) where others are balancing on their mount brackets. I have to do some modifications to my tonneau cover mounts (Truxedo Lo Pro) to make it fit. Customer service is off the charts with this company.
Dave (Bay Area) | May 30th, 2020
Awesome materials, hardware and instructions. Top quality. One major caveat, if you have aftermarket bad caps, such as KB Voodoo, the brackets will be about 1/4” to high. It will require a spacer between the bed cap and the bracket to prevent the bed rails (200-lbs per rail) from carrying all the load. I knew this was going to be a problem going into it but will require some Metal fab and metal cement to overcome.
Micah (California) | May 10th, 2020
This rack far exceeded my expectations!! The installation was very easy with the online video. Build quality is exceptional!!! Works great for our kayaks and other gear.
Angel (Nashville, TN) | April 18th, 2020
Really impressed with the quality and the video install makes it so easy. Really happy with my buy
Al Germann (Texas) | February 24th, 2020
I was able to mount this rack and use my weathertech rollup bed cover. The instructional videos were helpful and some minor changes had to be done to get both to work. After several rains it does not leak the rack seems well built and assembled fairly quickly. I would recommend this product.
Note From Victory 4x4: Glad you got your cover to work with this rack!
Christian W (Alabama) | February 22nd, 2020
This is a strongly built well designed bed rack. I use it mainly for camping at trail systems, so great for transporting bikes and leaving the bed free for other camping essentials. I plan on put a tent on top. Also have Rotopax on there with plenty of clearance. I have taken it off-road with bikes through river crossing and rocky terrain was very steady but with modern handlebars could see it getting in the was in tight spots. All around Awesome Product!!!

The powder coating on the rack is nice and everything went together easily and feels very sturdy. We had a small issue with mis-fabricated mounting brackets for our GMC Canyon. It can happen with anything fabricated by hand. Mitchell handled the issue superbly and got us the replacement parts to get things rolling.
Justin | February 17th, 2020
I installed the mid height rack in my Colorado with the adapter brackets and its done great so far with my RTT. It keeps my tent just a few inches over the cab but still room to get into the bed. Would recommend for sure!
Shannon (Alabama) | January 3rd, 2020
We bought the bed rack for our son who was stationed in CA. We were concerned that the rack would not arrive in time before he changed duty stations. Mitchell did a wonderful job of making sure it would arrive on time and keeping us posted on its progress towards shipment. It arrived just in time for our son to mount it on his truck - secure a roof top tent - and make an epic drive across our great nation! The rack does everything he wanted it to do and was easy to install in the parking lot of his base :)
Note From Victory 4x4: Thanks for your review and for your son's service!
