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 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.

Q David • 02/11/2021, 12:44:45 PM have a 17 tacoma 5' bed, looking at getting the smittybuilt XL RTT... will the rack allow the tent to hang slightly over the cab or will it hang off the back? Also, open to suggestions, thanks
A 02/15/2021, 12:52:47 PM It would be easiest to let the extra length of the tent hang off the back, but we do offer 3" risers for mounting tents if you would like to put it over the cab. https://www.victory4x4.com/product/VBR-3RTT.html
Q Jeremy • 02/24/2021, 8:05:39 PM What are the various measurements between the top bars? My rooftop tent mounting rails run in the same direction and I want to ensure they will overlap.

The front to back span (on center) of the side to side bars is 46.8 for the short bed or 58.8 for the long bed.
Q Tim • 03/17/2021, 7:00:49 PM When mounting to a 2019 Colorado you use the additional mounting brackets in the stake pockets. Does this mount the victory rack flush to the top of the bed rails?

Q Greg • 03/28/2021, 4:10:44 PM What is the clearance height between bed and bottom of rear entry of the half rack (12")?

Q Shannon Green • 04/28/2021, 1:40:24 PM I see the configuration with two bikes mounted on either side of the rack, but could you mount two MORE bike on the top of the rack as well? We currently use the Rocky Mount bike mounts in the track system for all four bikes...2019 Tacoma Long Bed.
A 04/28/2021, 5:26:15 PM We run two more rocky mounts on the top (or 3) all the time. Works great. We usually just strap the rear tires to the back crossbar of the rack.
Q Nicholas Bailey • 06/10/2021, 8:27:36 PM Will this fit a new 19-21 Ford Ranger??

A 08/12/2021, 3:19:21 PM It's adjustable for beds 62"-65" wide, so yours would be too wide.
Q Nick • 08/04/2021, 9:05:48 PM Is there a way to raise the rack by a half inch?
A 08/12/2021, 4:01:01 PM Not really.
Q Jose • 08/23/2021, 6:45:19 PM Does the 18" rack height, 6' length, fit a 2010 Tacoma DCLB? I thought the 2nd and 3rd gens. had slightly different cab widths? How would that work out with the cross bars.

A 03/04/2022, 2:40:36 PM The slots are designed for a light that has mounting holes 0.375" to 4.125" on center and uses up to 5/16 bolts. Many of the small rectangular truck clearance lights you see on trailers will fit. Also there are some mini chase lights that work great, we like the Baja Designs RTL-M.
Q Breann • 03/06/2022, 2:19:54 PM In the choose bed length option it says 5' and 6'. In the description is says available for 5.5' beds and 6.5' beds. Will this work for my 5' bed? And an ikamper mini 2.0?
A 03/11/2022, 4:11:21 PM Sorry for the confusion, the official bed lengths of the Tacoma are 5' or 6' We will fix the description.
Q Bryan • 03/18/2022, 10:31:30 AM Do you offer extra top rails?
A 03/23/2022, 2:13:28 PM We do not.
Q meshaell • 03/18/2022, 3:17:57 PM I have a '16 Tacoma 5' Bed and the Full Rack. 1. Do ya'll have any recommendations for a hard shell tent that would fit nicely on the rack and clear the shark fin antenna? 2. I am also looking for a Kayak Mount for the rack that would clear the roof as well. 3. Any updates on the soft topper for underneath the rack? Thank you!
A 04/06/2022, 1:07:01 PM 1. We often use spacers to mount the tent up enough to clear our cab rack or the shark fin. Our VRKRTT spacers will add an inch and will also work with the bed rack. The VBR-3RTT will add 3". 2. Universal J mount kayak mounts should allow a kayak to clear the cab. 3. Our Overland Bed Rack VT23XBR will clear a softopper and add more height for mounting a tent since it's the same height as our cab rack.
Q Alex • 04/12/2022, 10:56:22 AM What models of trucks does this rack actually work with?
A 04/27/2022, 12:16:12 PM Tacoma, Colorado, Canyon, & Jeep Comanche that we've tested here.
Q Dezi • 04/26/2022, 12:20:06 PM Is it compatible with the truxedo roll up

Q Cody W • 06/27/2022, 11:05:23 PM Will the half-rack fit on a 2019 Tacoma with the OEM folding tonneau cover?
A 06/30/2022, 12:40:41 PM It will not work with a hard/folding tonneau cover.
Q Cody Wyckoff • 09/16/2022, 8:46:17 AM Will I be able to put a rollup bed cover on an 18 Tacoma if I have the midsize rack on it?
A 09/16/2022, 3:05:02 PM Yes, we have used soft tonneau covers with the bed rack.
Q Albert Tolentino • 10/31/2022, 4:59:38 PM Can this hold a tuffstuff alpha
A 11/03/2022, 12:22:43 PM Yes, although with the 5' bed Tacoma and mid-height rack it will hang back over the rear quite a bit. With the full-height rack and 5' bed, we would recommend some tent risers to balance it over the cab some.
Q Mayt • 03/19/2023, 1:31:00 PM Will this fit to a 2023 nissan frontier pro-4x. It's has the 5' box, I also have the access vanish tonneau cover. Will it work with that cover aswell?
A 03/30/2023, 2:59:46 PM We have verified that our Adventure bedrack works with that: https://www.victory4x4.com/product/VABR.html should work with your cover as well.
Q Bradley • 04/09/2023, 6:40:38 PM Will this fit a stock 2021 Tacoma
A 04/17/2023, 7:24:12 PM Yes.
Q Will ek • 04/12/2023, 9:21:52 PM I’m struggling to find a 3rd brake light that is compatible and or isn’t cheap looking. What would you recommend?
A 04/17/2023, 7:24:12 PM 4" Rectangle RED LED clearance lights (like for trailers) fit the hole pattern. If you want brighter, look at the Baja Designs RTL-M Mini LED Rear Light Bar.

Kylek (Endicott) | January 18th, 2022
First bed rack, extremely reliable and easy to install. Highly recommend this bed rack. Fast and easy shipping and well packaged product. Will but more products from Victory.
Mark (IN) | October 30th, 2021
Awesome quality rack, my only complaint is the rack is a little too close to the cab l. Made installing rtt difficult. Maybe offer shorter crossbars and molle panels to use with different size tents and create more space between the cab.
Zac Dunn (California) | May 18th, 2021
I was completely blown away by this rig, and this company. Extended lead times were clearly laid out, and let me say that they beat that date by about 2 weeks. Packaging was above and beyond ANYTHING I have ever received. Quality is amazing, install was easy. The only negative thing I can say about it is it was missing 8 washers.
RJ (CA) | January 10th, 2021
I shopped around and found this great company and deal. I wanted the right sized (height) rack for a rooftop tent. It needed to be below the cab so my tent and truck could be parked in my garage with a low opening. Two height options available. Plus, I get better gas mileage. The construction and finish are outstanding. Price-point was awesome too! I made the right choice. Thanks Victory!
Kent Martin (Spokane) | October 21st, 2020
This rack has worked as advertised. Purchased the bike rack accessories as well. Had to modify the back tire portion of the bike rack in order for the bikes to not touch the truck tent we have. All works great. Sturdy, nice looking. Am keeping it on year round.
Andrew R (Florida) | October 17th, 2020
I'm really enjoying the rack. Holds and handles everything I need it too. The only negative thing is I have noticed some rust spots here and there around the welds and the mounting holes. As if the coating didn't get done all the way. Not enough to be concerned able and very easy to fix. If your not in Florida this may never be an issue for you. Here everything rusts. All in all I'm very impressed with the rank the easy install and look. I have recommended it to multiple people.
Tracker (South Carolina) | September 2nd, 2020
Had a great 7028-mile road trip and I used the Victory Mid-level bed rack and roof rack systems that made my trip the best in years. I've modified and adapted small pieces to this great system and couldn't ave asked for a better performance. I went from Front Runner to Victory 4 x 4 and I couldn't expect more.
Chris (Indiana) | August 25th, 2020
This all started with a few questions I needed answered before purchasing, which were all answered quickly and clearly. This rack does exactly what I need it to do. What I have attached to it: roof top tent, shovel, axe, rototrax, rotopax, various lights, and a high lift jack.
Tyler Bender (Oregon) | August 10th, 2020
My Victory 4X4 bed rack and Access Vanish T cover work so well together and I get SO many compliments. While everyone else has dirty and wet boxes and beds mine is dry and very clean looking! The install videos were great but I had to get creative when installing the cover with the bed rack. The one video they have with the vanish cover is helpful but Access since has upgraded the cover and it was a little different. The install took me almost all day to figure it out, been trying to get around to do an install video of it but it was well worth the effort to make it fit! I will be buying the roof rack and all sorts of other additions from them soon!
KT K. (Utah) | June 2nd, 2020
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.
