Robert Matzig, Production Manager for Rack-it and SureFit Truck Racks, gives us a demonstration of how to install the Rack-it and SureFit Truck Rack on the composite bed Toyota Tacoma pickup. Since this is a unique product and the installation is somewhat different than a steel bed pickup, this video should be informative and also show that this procedure is pretty easy as well.

Rack-it HD Rack specifically designed for the composite bed on the Toyota Tacoma. Gary Kank, Sales Manager of Rack-it Truck Racks, shows us the design and strength of the Rack-it design to create a HD rack system for a truck bed made of composite materials.

Leave no truck un-Racked with our 1000 Series Rack, specially designed for 2005 - current Toyota Tacoma trucks. Our all-American steel construction makes for the toughest Rack on the market. Bypassing mounting directly to Tacoma’s composite plastic truck bed, Rack-it uses a completely one-of-a-kind mounting system, bolting directly into the frame and chassis through existing entry points. Tested for the dependability of load strength, Rack-it vehicle-specific engineering means you can load your Tacoma and go. 

Our 1000 Series Standard Racks were engineered with hand-loaded construction materials in mind, with the interlocking Modular design delivering the same reliable strength you expect from a Rack-it, all in a single shippable package. Easily assembled and maneuvered during installation, the Rack-it 1000 Series also delivers one of the quietest rides on the market.

Offering unmatched strength and stability, our Standard Rack provides a versatile and efficient solution for any material you need to haul.

We know performance is all in the details, so we’ve custom designed every Rack for Make, Model and Year-specific fitting. Whether you have a standard cab, access cab or double cab, short bed, long bed – we’ve designed a Rack for you.

  • The Rack was designed with beveled edges to guide the pipes together properly while the nuts are welded on the inside of the tube to eliminate alignment issues. When you insert the bolt it immediately meets up with the pre-placed nut, making assembly quick and easy like no other Rack, all while providing the same strength as a Modular system.


We've built our Racks with hooks for ratchet tie-downs and ropes: the solid steel rope hook is fully welded to each of the steel uprights for ultimate strength.

Match your style with three stock powder coat options available in gloss black, texture (matte) black or white. All racks come stock with a base primer coat and a top coat of your color choic

Double weld-in gussets at each cross bar and cab overhang provide maximum structural integrity, creating an even stronger frame resistant to snapping.

The entire Modular Rack is packaged securely in a one box system which includes all the hardware required to assemble the Rack – and it can be shipped anywhere. The final assembled Rack creates a singular unit support cage over the bed and cab, providing support for supplies and protection in the event of an accident. 

Front mounting brackets designed specifically for Tacoma trucks attaches the Rack to the frame and chassis at the strongest point of the bed.

Backed up by rear mounting brackets that attach to the steel tail light stanchion, this exclusive installation kit provides all the strength of our bed rail mounted Racks, now designed for the composite plastic beds of Toyota Tacoma trucks. 

We’ve included a removable rear bar for versatility. Quick release D-Ring pins make it easy to remove, so even taller loads won’t stand in your way. The bar is fully welded and is designed to safely support the rear structure of the two main tube rails.

Custom built for Toyota Tacomas, Rack-it conforms to the body lines of the vehicle, eliminating drag and complementing the look of the truck.

We use only burly Schedule 10 American steel pipe construction, durable and thicker than our competitors. With a .120 wall, it resists bending, denting and flexing as the strongest and most durable material used in the production of truck Racks.

Candy-Cane rounded endpoints protect your materials and make it easier to slide and load large pieces.
