Recommended Roof Rack and Ladder Rack for 2017 Toyota Tacoma with Access Cab


Looking to add a roof rack to my 2017 access cab Toyota Tacoma. Currently it’s bare and I want to use mounts that use the rain gutter channels vs something that latches down to the door frame. Does a manufacturer make something for that? Primary use on roof rack will be for work. Will be adding ladder rack in the near future.

For your 2017 Toyota Tacoma with access cab, there is not a gutter mount roof rack system confirmed to fit. I recommend the Rhino-Rack system that utilizes the door frame clips custom fit to your truck to resist scratching or damaging your vehicle. This kit consists of:
Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - 54" Long # RRVA137B-2
Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA
Custom DK Fit Kit # DK174

If you really don't want these clips there is an alternative in the SeaSucker Monkey Bars Roof Rack # 298-SX6000B. This uses 6 vacuum cups each rated for 210 lbs pull strength and will give you a roof rack with 150 lb capacity.

When you get ready to add a ladder rack, I recommend the T-Rac Pro2 Ladder Rack for Toyota Tacoma # TH37005XT. I've attached a video of this installation for you. This will fit whether or not you have the deck rail system. You may instead want # TH37005XT-EX that has the over-the-cab extension.
