Expert Answers about Topline

  • Bike Rack Recommendation to Carry Five Bikes in the Bed of a Utility Trailer
  • To transport the 5 bikes, you could use 5 of the Fork Mount Bike Carrier Block - Thule Low Riders, # TH821, and attach them to the bed of your trailer. I have included a link to the installation details below. To secure the bikes to the rack and/or trailer, I recommend adding a cable lock like # CAB-10.

  • Will Topline Bed-Hopper # TS2000-02 Interfere with Loading and Unloading Truck Bed
  • If you look at the provided photos, you can see how the Bed-Hopper will sit when the tailgate is open. As you can see, the step can be folded down out of the way so that it will not interfere with loading or unloading your truck bed.

  • Will a Bed Extender Fit a Ford Explorer Sport Trac with a Bed Liner
  • The Topline Bed Extender, # BX4004-02, will fit if you have a bed liner. However, you may find that you will have to trim the bed liner on some vehicles. Since every vehicle and bed liner combination is different, I cannot say for certain if you will need to trim or not. On an Explorer Sport Trac, you will need to measure the width of the bed where the extender will fit. If it is 48 inches or greater in width, the extender will fit. We also have the Topline extender with an anodized...

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack and Kayak Carriers for 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • A ladder rack is one option for transporting two kayaks in your truck along with your four bikes but I have a recommendation for you that might save you some money. Since you will be towing a trailer your hitch receiver will be occupied, but if you have a 2-inch hitch and were to add a Curt Multipurpose Ball Mount # D210 you could use a load bar in the upper receiver to support the rear of the two kayaks and then install a roof rack on the truck's cab. This arrangement will cost substantially...

  • Truck bed Bike Rack Recommendation for a Truck with Tonneau Cover Mounting Rails
  • The rails for a tonneau cover extend too far out for the brackets on the Topline bike rack, # UG2500, to safely attach. What I recommend that will not require any drilling into the bed or modification is the Thule Insta-Gator # TH501. This rack secures by anchors that mount in the tail gate hinge. Take a look at the video and isntructions I have linked.

  • Recommend Tailgate Step Compatible With Tonneau Cover on 2004 Ford F-150 Lariat
  • Since the Topline Tailgate Step # TS2000-01 mounts directly to the top edge of the tailgate, more than likely it will interfere with the tonneau cover on your 2004 Ford F-150 Lariat. I would recommend going with the Westin Fold-Up Bed Ladder, # 10-3000, as it does not have a bracket that needs to be mounted on the top of the tail gate. The mounting bracket on the Topline step could cause fit issues with the tonneau cover. Checkout the short video I produced showing the Topline Tailgate...

  • Bike Adapter Bar Recommendation for Hauling Beach Cruisers with Topline 2 Bike Carrier # UG2500
  • There is a way to transport your beach cruisers with this Topline 2 Bike Carrier, part # UG2500, but I would not recommend attaching it to the down tube of your bike. I would recommend you use a Yakima Tube Top Bike Adapter Bar, part # Y02531, to provide you with an attachment point for the # UG2500. I attached a review video for this product for you to check out as well as installation instructions. You will want to measure the distance from your seat post to your handlebars, and as...

  • How Can Two Bikes With Different Angle Crossbars Attach With the Topline Truck Bed Bike Rack #UG2500
  • The clamp at the end of the bar that connects to your truck bed will swivel to secure your bike at the cross bar, but the clamps on the Add-A-Bike adapter do not swivel or rotate to connect to angled crossbars on your Electra Townie bikes. Instead, you will want to connect the adapter to the seat posts since they should be at the same or very similar angles. I have attached a photo showing you two bikes connected with the adapter at the seat posts.

  • Will the Topline Fold Down Truck Bed Expander Fit on a 2013 Toyota Tacoma
  • Yes, the Topline Fold Down Truck Bed Expander, # BX4004-02, will fit your 2013 Toyota Tacoma. In fact, we had a customer install this on a 2013 Tacoma, so I attached his install photos that he submitted for you to check out. I have also attached an installation video that we made on a GMC Sierra for you to check out. It will show how to install the bed expander. This item is also available in anodized silver as part # BX4004-01.

  • Installing Top Line Bed Extender # BX4004-02 on 2010 Dodge Dakota with Plastic Bed Liner
  • The Topline Bed Extender you referenced, part # BX4004-02 is width-adjustable and will indeed fit your 2010 Dodge Dakota if the plastic liner you refer to covers a steel tailgate. You would need to drill through the liner to attach the bed extender, but the liner can remain in place. I have provided a photo showing the extender mounted to a tailgate that has the plastic liner.

  • Options for Carrying 4 Bikes In a 2010 Toyota Tacoma Truck Bed with Rail Track Tie Down System
  • We do have some truck bed mounted bike racks that will work with your 2010 Toyota Tacoma with rail track system, but the Topline system will not fit because direct access to the bed rails is needed to secure the clamps. For in bed 4 bike transport you could use four of the Yakima BlockHead Single Bike Truck Bed Mounted Racks, item # Y01117. Another option for your truck would be a hitch mounted bike rack like the Thule Parkway 4 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack, item # TH956. If you...

  • Can Topline 1 Bike Carrier Work With Extang Trifecta Soft Tonneau Cover On 2015 GMS Sierra
  • I have attached a couple photos of the Topline 1 Bike Carrier Truck Bed Mounted Expandable Bike Rack, part # UG2500-1 installed. The instructions for the tonneau cover state that it needs to either be completely flat and installed or it has to be completely folded up and secured at the cab. Since it is a rail free design and completely self-contained you can install the bike rack with the cover folded up or removed and it will work well for you.

  • Truck Bed Bike Rack Recommendations for a Subaru Baja
  • The Topline bike carrier, # UG2500, could potentially work in a Subaru Baja bed. Take a look at the video I have linked. If the Baja has a lip like on a regular truck bed to attach the hardware, you can use this rack. Another possible option is the Thule Insta-Gator, # TH501. It secures in the gap between the tailgate and bed and holds 2 bikes. I have included links to the instructions and a video for you. I have also included a link to all truck bed style bike racks.

  • Installing Topline Truck Bed Extender #BX4004-02 on 1998 Toyota Tacoma with Factory Tail Gate Cover
  • The Topline Truck Bed Expander, part # BX4004-02, is a universal-fit item intended to fit a broad range of truck tailgates. Installation processes will vary slightly between vehicles and based on the presence of features such as tail gate liners, as on your 1998 Tacoma. The linked video shows installation of the silver version of the extender, part # BX4004-01, in a different make and model truck. The extender itself can adjust in width from 48 to 64 inches and clips into the two steel...

  • Will Topline Bike Rack part # UG2500-1 Fit a 2016 GMC Canyon
  • The Topline Bike Rack part # UG2500-1 that you referenced is a confirmed fit your 2016 GMC Canyon. What a lot of guys do when they want to use this rack on a shorter truck bed is turn the front wheel so that the setup is shorter overall. I attached picture that shows how this is done.

  • Will the Topline 2 Bike Truck Bed Rack Work with a Clamp on Tonneau Cover Without Damaging Rails
  • The Topline 2 Bike Carrier, # UG2500-4, is designed to clamp around the bed side rail and would most likely not work with a clamp on style tonneau cover, like the LiteRider Roll-Up Tonneau Cover by Access, # 834532001088. It will depend on the style of clamp on rail that your tonneau uses. I attached a photo showing the style of clamp on rail that the LiteRider Roll-Up tonneau uses, see link. Another option for carrying bikes in the bed of your truck would be the Softride Tailgate Pad...

  • How to Prevent Theft of the Topline Bed Extender # BX4004-02
  • What you would do to deter theft of the bed extender # BX4004-02 is to use security type of hardware. Something that requires an uncommon specialty tool to install/remove. That would secure the mounts that attach to the tailgate. To secure the extender to the mounts you would have to replace the pins that hold the extender on. Something like # 7692 or a similar lock could work. Or something like the Toylok # LC337120 is another option. It would also be good for securing other items stored...

  • Does the Bed-Hopper Tailgate Step Secure Into Place when in the Storage Position
  • I went and pulled a Bed-Hopper Truck Tailgate Step, # TS2000-02, from the warehouse to check on its operation. The unit does swing freely and there is nothing to keep it stationary so it can move even when in the stored position. THis step is also available in silver using # TS2000-01.

  • Will Truck Bed Bike Rack UG2500 Work on a Toyota Tacoma with a Bed Liner
  • The truck bed bike rack system # UG2500 is installed by clamping directly to the top of the truck bed side wall. If the bed liner on your Tacoma covers the bed rail, you would need to cut the 3 inch diameter hole for installation using a hole saw, which can be purchased at any hardware store. To get a better idea of whether the bike rack will work on your application, I recommend taking a look a the close up pictures on the product page, which show the mounting style on trucks with bed...

  • 2017 Ram 1500 Utility Rails And Rambox Compatibility With Topline 2 Bike Carrier For Truck Bed
  • For your 2017 Ram 1500 with Rambox and Utility Rails, the Topline 2 Bike Carrier Truck Bed Mounted Expandable Bike Rack # UG2500 may fit. I reached out to the manufacturer and they said that they haven't tested it on your model but if the clamp can fit, it will work fine. The measurements of the clamp are 4 inches tall by 2-1/2 inches wide. I recommend measuring from just above the bed rail where the top of the clamp would be to your Utility Rails to see if you have the 4 inches to secure...

  • Side to Side Distance Between Mounting Bracket Holes on the Topline Truck Bed Extender # BX4004-02
  • The Topline Fold Down Truck Bed Extender, part # BX4004-02, is a universal-fit item, and will adjust to fit truck beds of differing widths. The bed extender when not extended and fully retracted measures 48 inches in overall width. You will need to check on your tailgate if you will have room to attach the mounting hardware. I do not have any experience with it fitting on a 1965 Ford Ranchero, but to try and help you see if it will fit to your tailgate, I pulled the bed extender from...

  • Will Truck Bed Bike Rack UG2500-4 Fit a Truck with a Camper Shell
  • On the clamp that attaches to the bed rail, there is very little space. If the lip from the Leer cap is too thick, the clamp will not be able to mount correctly. You can see a better picture of the clamp on part # UG2500 to give you a better idea of the space available. The short arms measure 9 inches from the inside of one clamp to the inside of the other clamp. On the long arm, this measurement is 18 inches. I have included a video review of the rack for you to view. We have numerous...

  • Attaching the Topline Bed Extender to a 2001 Ford F150
  • The bed extender attaches to a metal bracket that is attached to the tailgate. The bracket is attached using screws. It is held to the brackets with removable pins. The whole unit can fold flat against the tailgate. Take a look at the product page pictures below the description to see some close up shots of the extender.

  • Will Topline 2-Bike Truck Bed-Mounted Rack # UG2500 Fit On 2012 Toyota Tundra
  • The Topline 2 Bike Carrier Truck Bed-Mounted Rack # UG2500 may fit your 2012 Toyota Tundra. To find whether or not it is a fit for your vehicle, you will need to check your truck bed wall to see if there is a lip that hangs over the top for the clamp to hang on to. If you have a bedliner that covers the underside of the top bed rail, you will need to cut a hole so the clamp can grab onto the lip at the top of the sidewall. Also, if you have a bed rail system, it will have to be removed...

  • How Secure and Sturdy is Truck Bed 3 Bike Carrier - Topline - Expandable, # UG2500-3
  • I went out to the warehouse to do a little testing on one of these racks. On the Truck Bed 3 Bike Carrier - Topline - Expandable, # UG2500-3, side to side movement will be limited as the arms are rigid. The clamps do allow for some up and down movement which will reduce the stress on the aluminum arms and so the bikes can move with the bed floor as you drive. The arms are sturdy and it would take a lot of torque, more than a person can produce without tools or machines, to bend or break...

  • Truck Bed Bike Carrier Setup for 5 Bikes in 2018 Ford F150
  • The Topline # UG2500 frame-mount truck bed bike rack is a perfect option for transporting bikes in a pickup bed without having to remove the bikes' front wheels as with fork-mount carriers like Hollywood Racks # HRT970 and Yakima # Y01117. Since one Topline cannot be configured for 5 bikes (up to 4 only) your idea of using two carriers, one for 3-bikes and one for 2-bikes, is absolutely the way to go. You will then want to order items # UG2500 and # UG2500-3. If for example two of...

  • Fit of Topline # UG2500 Truck Bed 2 Bike Carrier with 2015 Toyota Tacoma w/ Factory Rail System
  • The Topline # UG2500 attaches to the truck bed via a clamp that connects to the underside of the truck bed side rail, as shown in the photo I've edited for you. As you can see, if your truck has a drop-in bed liner, you can cut a hole in it so the clamp can still attach to the bed rail. If the underside of the bed side rail isn't accessible, the rack won't be compatible with your truck.

  • How to Plug Up a Hole Cut in a Bed Liner to Install the Topline Truck Bed Bike Rack # UG2500
  • What you can do first is use a hole saw to drill the hole out of the bed liner. Using a hole saw will provide a nice round hole that will be easier to plug. Make sure the edges are smoothed down with some sand paper. Then you can get a grommet of some kind at a hardware store to plug up the hole when the bike rack is not in use.

  • Will the Topline Bed-Hopper interfere with a Leer Bed Topper Hatch
  • As you can see in the photo I have edited, the Topline Bed-Hopper does not extend much over the top or to the rear of the tailgate, and would not interfere with the hatch of your bed topper. I have confirmed this by speaking with my Topline representative.
