    Have a 5.5' CM with the Bakflip MX4 tonneau on it. I was wondering if anyone has some good suggestions for c-channel bike holders? I would be fine with keeping the tailgate down + buying the bed extension. I found a couple on Amazon, but they aren't compatible with the tonneau since it required relocating the rails down a bit. If I can't find anything, I have a tailgate pad I could use, but would prefer to not need it since I hate taking it off/on all the time

    I actually bought that and tried it. It won't work, the bracket won't reach down to the channel if it's been relocated like it with the BakFlip MX4.

    I can’t remember where I saw it but on another thread I remember seeing a bike mounted transverse across the truck bed with a rail-to-fork attachment. Requires taking the front wheel off and having the front of the bike a little in the air to reach the side rail of the truck but seems reasonable?

    Somewhat related, I don’t have my 5.5’ crewmax yet but I’m thinking of taking the plunge to get the bakflip over the cheap gator sfx tonneau purely due the the fact that the bakflip can securely lean against the cab and provide more room for bikes. I feel like even with a tailgate pad route, I’ll need the whole 5’ which I wouldn’t get with the gator, right?

    On my short bed Tacoma I fold mine forward twice and with the tailgate down there's plenty of room for the bike to stand up. Or you could always get a tailgate protection cover and turn the bike around putting the front wheel and forks over the tailgate.20220629_084559.jpg 20220629_084620.jpg

    Had this on my Gen 2 - worked really well, picked it up on AMZ for $49 a few years back. Just pulled it off my Gen 2 today, haven't tried to install it on the Gen 3 yet but it looks like it will be just fine.

    I'm using the rockymounts to haul my two mountain bikes and have had good luck so far. They installed into the factory tracks without issue. Great product. They can be found on Amazon or ordered direct, FWIW.
