Fit of DeeZee Customizable Truck Bed Ladder Rack # DZ95053 on 2004 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab


I was wondering if this would work for my 2004 Toyota Tacoma Double Cab. The front of my bed has the wheel wells right at the beginning, there is only about 6 1/4 inches of clearance from the top of the wheel well to the top of the bed. If is a five foot bed.

I spoke with my DeeZee representative who tells me that in order to install the ladder rack, you will need slightly more than 1-1/2 inches of clearance between the front of the truck bed and the wheel well, as shown in the provided diagram. If you have the proper clearance, the ladder rack will work great for you.

If the wheel well goes all the way to the front of the box, then the DZ95053 would not be a good choice for you. A full rack that mounts to the top of the bed rails like the Thule Xporter, part # TH500XT would be a better, although more costly alternative.
