I am attempting to start up my own sub business and an searching for ladder racks for my 2007 toyota tacoma extended cab. I dont think it makes a difference but its the TRD edition. Im looking for something that I will not need to drill into the bed and can just clip on the rails of the bed. something that isnt too time consuming to put up and take down. also on a standard day I will be putting up a 6 foot a 12 foot a 24 foot and a 32 foot ladder. pictures would be very helpful as far as style and efficiency. Im also not loaded so Im kinda looking for something on a budget but shoot me any info you may have for me.

Thanks guys. :thumbsup:

If you want something that goes up and down fast look at TracRac.

I have a cheap trac rac on my 1500, the expensive trac rac on one of my 2500 and a system one on my other 2500, all are good racks, but you definitely get what you pay for.

Next time I'm getting one fabbed by a welder to exactly what I want

I know you mentioned werent into drilling holes in bed but couldnt be happier with these cheap racks. Take about 30 seconds to remove.

It's an alright rack, but once a month I have to tighten the nuts, and once a year I have to replace all the stainless locking nuts, because it loosens and starts to wiggle bad. Those aren't cheap either. I've tried everything with it too. Thread lock everything. So for $1200 I don't think it's worth it.

The same thing happened with the $300 trac rac, but that's on my personal truck, so usually all I have up there is a ladder when bidding out roofs and stuff.

But I priced put getting custom aluminum ones built. My short bed regular cab was $700. The short bed extended cab was $750 and the long box extended was $1000. But it was going to go over the good and attach to the front bumper.
So I think I'll go that way

Not really sure what they are weighted for but are made by weather guard. I usually only carry around a ladder or two or the brake once in a while. I'm sure a bunch of ladders wouldn't be an issue.

Weather guard makes good stuff, so does Adrian steel
