    I made a couple of bike mounts that attach onto the bed rails. I really liked the way they came out and wanted to share them with you all. Let me know what you think and if you have any questions. I would say that each one came out to about 28 bucks. I bought all the parts inside OSH (except for bike mounts), but you can probably get them at any local hardware store.

    My first issue was drilling big ol' holes for the huge 5/8" bolt to fit through. I used a stepper bit. Then I bolted together the two halves using the pre-drilled holes and tested them out on the bed rail. I did have to remove a screw to slide the square nut back, but its not a huge issue. Then I drilled the holes in the bracket to mount the bike mount. Once assembled, I sprayed the bracket with some bed liner spray paint I had already.

    My goal was to create mounts that will be able to sit under my tonneau cover. I also wanted to just flip the cover back and mount the bikes sideways so I didnt have to remove the cover everytime.

    I've been searching for DIY bed rail mounts for my road bike. Might have to try this out. FWIW, the sunlite mounts were cheaper on ebay

    Sweet set up. I like that the bikes sit sideways taking up minimal bed space.

    That is slick. How has it held up for you? I am looking at a tundra and researching bike options (I have a mtn, road, and trail bike that I ride). This seems like what I was hoping to find for a tonneau solution

    Another option for those just looking for a quick bed mount is to just use some T-Nuts. I assume this would also fit under a tonneau cover? My bike is too long to fit sideways...ha
