The Thule Xsporter would be a 10 if it weren’t for what I think is a design flaw. I mounted this rack to my 2007 Tacoma, and anyone that has a 2005 or newer Tacoma knows, the plastic molding in the bed tapers in and the flange of the storage bins stick out another eight of an inch. The combination of those two things keeps me from lowering the towers at the rear of my bed near the tailgate.
Anyone out there have similar problems? Anyone out there have any solutions? I’d really like to be able to lower my racks, even though it is perfectly aligned with center of rear view mirror in that position.
