    It took a little bit of searching so I'll post what I found and what I installed to help anyone thinking of doing this.

    For the Camper Shell:

    Thule 60" Top Tracks

    Thule 460 Podium Foot Pack (Full Pack includes 4)

    Thule Fit Kit 3101

    Thule 65" Load Bars

    For the Cab:

    Thule 4802 Traverse Foot Half Pack (Half Pack includes 2, 480 Foot pack includes 4)

    Thule Fit Kit 1555 (You only need 2 if you can buy them separate)

    Thule 65" Load Bars (You can buy a single bar)

    Thule 52" Airscreen

    2"CB shackles, bushings and 1 shim, lockerdown console vault, rear folding seat back mod, snugtop shell with opening side windows, 46g fuel tank, SDHQ sliders and hidden winch, Decked Drawers, Alcan leaf springs and got rid of the interior chrome
    Since the cab and canopy flex independently can the tracks get damaged by rigidly attached loads?

    Obviously not totally independently but I'm running a similar setup and can see some movement

    Not sure. I have the same set up on my Tacoma only occasionally haul a canoe or wood from Home Depot and what not. Those are usually short trips and I haven't noticed any damage to anything.

    My canoe is the only long load I've had on mine. Let me know if you spot a problem. I'm wanting to do just what you did, but for now I just use the foam gunnel cushions right above the windshield.
