Will Older Thule Square Crossbars Fit Track System on Truck Cap of 2015 Toyota Tacoma  


Im experienced with roof racks for kayaks - however, Im not familiar with ones for truck caps. Im looking to move my Thule square bars and Hullavators to the truck cap on a 6 ft. bed Thule fit kit to attach to my cap have caused damage to my door jambs/cab roof. Im looking at: Thule Roof Mounted Top Rack System - 60 inch Long THTB60 Question: What feet will accommodate my existing Thule square bars and connect to the item mentioned above Thule Roof Mounted Top Rack System - 60 inch Long. Heck, is that even the correct item to start? Ive got a 2015 Tacoma TRD Off-Road Access Cab 6ft bed w/full fiberglass Jason cap

So in recent years Thule has changed their foot pad mounting system and cross bars, and the older style of crossbars won't work with the new mounting system. The new crossbars have slots on the bottom of the bars that attach to the feet, while the older square bars didn't. That is the long way of saying that the track system you asked about is a great option for a truck cap, but you won't be able to use your older crossbars, you'll need the new Thule square bars.

Depending on how wide your truck cap is, here is what you'll need to add a Thule square bar rack to your 2015 Toyota Tacoma's truck cap.

- Thule SquareBar Evo Crossbars - 53" Long # TH712400 or 60" Long # TH712500
- Thule Roof Mounted Top Rack System - 60" Long # THTB60
- Rapid Podium Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH460R
- Fit Kit for Thule Podium-Style Roof Rack Feet # THKIT3101

To lock the rack to the tracks and help protect your investment you can add lock cores to the feet with the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400.
