    Has anyone experienced doing this?
    I want to add this to a bed with a spray in liner already completed.
    Thanks.

    I've done it. Piece of cake. The place that sprayed it should have left the mounting points exposed.

    It is from the factory this way, the covered holes.
    Thanks.

    How do you do it?
    Did you have to drill out the bed liner, how did you find the holes?
    Just a little bit more details please.
    Thank you!

    They sprayed over the holes? Oh man, that sucks. I would get some measurements for you using my truck, but I have a double cab.

    I didn't have any problems with spray liner plugging up the deck rail mounting holes. All I did was mount the rails in the holes predrilled in the bed walls with the screws provided in the deck rail kit.

    I apologize for not being 100% clear.
    With the factory spray in bed liner the holes are covered 100%, no holes are visible where the rail bolts onto the side of the bed.
    So, no holes are visible, they are covered by the spray. So do you just use metal screws and drill through the bed and the bed liner? How does it attach?
    The Bed rails are a sticking point on buying this certain Tundra due to me using my ladder racks for kayaks when we go camping.
    That is my question.
    Thanks.

    Your bedliner must not be factory gotta be dealer installed. There are holes with threads in bed walls. Gonna be pretty hard to find them but if you can drill them out with a small bit 1/8in or so then run a tap through holes to clean out threads I think it was 8mm x 1.25 thread

    It's factory installed option on window sticker not aftermarket.
    Thanks for your reply.

    I apologize for not understanding the issue. I didn't realize that the pre-drilled mounting holes were completely covered by the spray liner. You might try to locate the holes by shining a strong flashlight down the side of the bed and look to see any indication of an indention in the spray where the holes would be. As an alternative, the front deck rail slides into a larger cutout in the front of the bed and is on line with the screw holes. If you locate that larger hole and then look along that same line, you may be able to locate the pre-drilled holes that way. At least that would narrow down the area you need to search. Once you locate them, you will probably need to clean out the threads with a tap as Tundraplatinum indicated.

    Just try to get someone with a CM to measure exactly where the holes are. Or better yet take a pic of the tape measure on the holes. Should get you close enough to drill a tiny pilot hole and find them.

    *edit- make dealer install it. Tell them you know 3000 people who have bedliners and not one had their holes filled. Lol holes filled. If that doesn't work then plan a.

    This warrants a complaint to the Toyota regional office. There's no reason the holes should be filled except that the bedliner installer was lazy. What would the dealer have done if you'd purchased a dealer installed set of rails?

    If you haven't bought it yet I would make the dealer fix the holes. They should have been plugged before spraying. If the factory liner is as hard as Linex, you're screwed trying to do it yourself.

    Make the dealer fix it! The holes should not have been covered, mine were not and I added the deck rails with no problem. Took less than 5 min.

    have the dealer fix it. If you are buying the truck from them ,have them throw the rails for free as well. Only $180 msrp or so.

    I've got a CM with this set up (spray in bed liner and rails). If the OP doesn't get this resolved with the dealer, let me know.

    If you have the rails hold them up to the bed side where they will be installed. The mounting holes on the rails match up to the pre-drilled holes on the bed. It will give you a real good idea of where the holes are that are covered.

    I know this is and old thread but what exactly did you tell the dealership about not having the pre-drilled holes exposed due to the spray-on bed liner. I'm asking because my truck has spray on liner with no holes exposed

    Same with me. I currently have a case open with Toyota corporate to fix the issue. Waiting to hear back from the dealership. They have until Monday to respond.

    I just bought a used 2015 crewmax and it has the spray in bed liner and they covered all the mounting holes an im wanting to have the deck rail system put in but not sure how to locate the holes. I tried the Toyota dealership that the truck was purchased at when it was new and they could not help me so I tried talking to Toyota HQ and that didn't go very well. does anyone know how I can locate the threaded holes or measurements for them so that I can get this done. thanks

    If you bought new. I would take it back to the dealer I bought it from. That’s what I did and had them fix it by retreading holes

    I added the rail system after I got my Tundra new with the spray on bed liner, easy peasy! Got a good deal from a forum member that sold me his!
