    Bike Rack for 06 Toyota Tundra

    I am looking for a very inexpensive form of transporting 2 bikes in the bed of my 06 Toyota Tundra. I've seen some rather elaborate looking racks but seem to be over $100.

    What's the best method or equipment out there where I don't have to drill into the bed to install? Any suggestions? Any links that I can reference?

    Thanks for the help!

    Why don't you just tie the bike(s) down like a motorcycle in the bed and then run a cable through the frame(s), hook the ends to your truck? That way it will only cost you the amount for the cable.

    There's a few on this page that are well under $100. I'll be picking one up for my ranger here very soon.

    Delta fork mount. Attach to 2x4. And you can lock it.

    Spend $20 at Home Depot and get (4) 6-foot tie downs and a long cable and Master lock. Easy, cheap, safe. You can buy half inch thick cable up to 20-feet long that would be very hard for someone to cut through. In the end, remember though if someone really wants your bike there is a way to steal anything.

    I have a 06 Tundra as well. I am looking for a way to stand the bikes up lin a rack like the ones gixxerjasen gave from nashbar.com, but I would like to keep the wheels still on the bike because I have bolt on axels not quick release.
    Thanks

    Get two of those, they are an awesome bargain at that price.
    I really wish I could use one, but my bed is too short for the wheelbase on my bike.

    Will that holder fit a 2.5 inch tire?

    You got me - try calling REI or the link I posted.
    From the pictures I see, looks easily wide enough, but I cannot say for sure.

    Unfortunately, I found this solution to be the best, then bought a short bed truck and it doesn't fit.

    I made one of these for the back of my Tacoma. It works well and only cost about $30 plus the tie downs.

    Check out this other thread for more ideas.

    I bought the Saris Kool rack for my Tacoma and absolutely love how it works. The hydraulic piston that "locks" the rack to the bed is a great setup. Check one out and rest assured, it is worth the money.

    Oh, yea. It is sooo easy to install and load the bikes. Then, when you're done with it you can store it in the closet.

    I saw one in a magazine this weekend that sits along the side of the bed and holds the bike from the side. I'll see if I can find it for you in the next day or so. Said magazine is at the bottom of my suitcase as I just got back from some fun in Idaho with work.

    I have an 04 tundra and I use the Yakima Bedheads that mount to the bed with a single allen bolt - thing C-clamp design. No drilling or marring your truck. They're pretty cheap you can find 'em on ebay.
