Recommended Sliding Rhino-Rack Roof Rack for Leer Cap on a 2016 Toyota Tacoma


I am looking at this item for install on a 2016 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab with a fiberglass Leer Cap. I am questioning the length of the tracks at 63? From front to back, the Leer Cap is only 57, so I am thinking the tracks need to be shorter? How much length do the end caps add? Can these tracks be easily cut to required length? Is there a choice of track lengths? Thank you


Expert Reply:

The 59" rails that come with the Rhino-Rack Roof Rack System w/ 2 Vortex Aero Crossbars # Y02-490B that you referenced can be cut to length according to your needs with your 2016 Toyota Tacoma. However, I do recommend going with the part # Y02-480B instead which is the exact same kit just with 54" long rails instead.

I went out to the warehouse and found that the rubber pieces at the ends of the rails measure about 2-1/2" so even though the usable part of the rails measures 54" they will end up being about 58-1/2" long once the rubber end caps have bee installed.
