    'I was wondering if anyone out there has installed the Go Rhino! Sport Bar 2.0 without the powered actuator for the lights. I am looking at the stationary light option. Specifically the installation to attach the unit to the bed. I have see a couple installation videos and they make it look easy. But most of the videos I have watched have the open / flanged bed rails. The Tundra looks like they have the boxed bed rails. Before I but it, wanted to see how difficult it would be to instal. Check out the video below.

    Thanks @fricho228. These will come in handy. Has anyone actually installed these and what was the difficulty level. Thanks

    We are currently trying to put one on a 2020 TRD Pro and its a nightmare! We've got to wait until monday to contact Go Rhino to find out why its not lining up with the bed rails. I was going to just run a ratchet strap around it and crank the ends in but going to wait and ask first.

    @Brad05 sorry to hear it. Let me know what customer service says. That sucks. The installation videos make it look so easy to install. Knew it was too good to be true. Good Luck

    @d_kennyjr I'll post up the outcome. It's just crazy the amount of money they charge for it, to not be a perfect fit is rather disappointing to say the least. Also by no means was it simple to install either, the plastic plates that go between the connection points have matching oblong holes so the slide around and make sure you go over all the bolts preinstalled because they were finger tight that. Once finally assembled it is a beautiful piece though, now to get it to fit.

    I saw one of these on a Ford F-150 today on my way home from work, but with no lights on it. Still looked killer! I want one even more now.

    I have the DeeZee “roll bar” and it took me about 3 hours.

    @Brad05, did you get the sizing issue resolved?

    I too, have been looking at this bar. I saw one a couple of weeks ago on a 1794 in my little town:

    However, everything that I have read and a couple of people that I have spoken to whom have installed it says it is an F'ing bitch to put on due to the closed bed walls of the Tundra. The special Go Rhino so called "Nut-certs" are what make the installation a pain in the ass, apparently. Think wall anchor and you sort of get the idea. Even on Go Rhino's Tundra install video, the guy trying to install the "nut-certs" has visible trouble trying to torque them, so they simply skip to the next step of the install. Very shitty on their part, IMHO. Also, if memory serves, there are issues with the rubber gasket that sits on top of the bed rail, but I do not remember exactly why. I know that there are a couple of members on this forum whom have done the install and had to do some serious improvisation. Maybe one of them will chime in.

    It's a cool looking mod, but other than a light bar and aestethic, it has ZERO function. After everything that I have seen, I think I am going to go RCI bed rack route instead. Way, WAY more function for the same $$.
