I have a Tacoma with a shell, and I'm looking to get a locking axle mount to lock the bike to the truck. This will only be one of 3 levels of security on the bike as it will be locked inside the bed as well as directly locked to the bed with a quality cable and lock.
As far as mounts go, the only thing I've found that will work with a 15mm thru axle is this Rocky Mounts Driveshaft HM:
DriveShaft HM- bike racks, truck racks, car racks, thru-axle bike racks, thru-axle bike carriers, thru-axle bike mounts, thru-axle adapters
My truck has a plastic liner, so I'm not sure where to best mount it. I'll want the bike to be facing backwards, but I'm not sure if I want to drill through the bed and the liner to mount it. So I'm looking at maybe just attaching the mount to a 2x4 that is cut exactly to the width of the bed.
Does anyone have any suggestions or other ideas as to how to install a mount like this? I'm looking for it to be as secure as possible as I'll be on a monthlong biking trip this year and want to have a little piece of mind.
