Anyone fit a WR in a Tacoma double cab?

I am curious how well it fits. Could you get two in there or is it impossible.

They will fit but it is tight. Your best bet is to stagger the bikes so that you dont have handlebar issues. I have a ford SuperCrew and the 5.5 foot box is kind of a pain but I put a foot stool that doubles as my bike stand in front of a front tire to stagger the bikes and it works sweet. :cry:

The new double cab short bed Tacoma only has a 60.3" bed. I doubt I could stagger the bikes and fit them in the bed. I am guessing only one will fit but am hoping maybe two will.

Is that 60.3 with the tail gate down?? To get bikes (one or 2) into my truck the tail gate has to be down.

You'll need a bigger cab than a double to do it without taking the bike apart. :cry:

I fit mine in my custom truck which is quite a bit shorter than a double cab. Tail gate has to be down and the bike at a 45 deg. angle in the bed.

ok, first off there is no way you can get one bike in on the diagonal with a double cab. the double cab bed is shorter than the xtra cab, and my WRF just fits in on the diagonal in my '02 xtra cab.

now then, when straight in my WRF rear wheel sits just on the gap between the bed and the tailgate. i guess i can tilt the tailgate up about 45deg or so. i never transport this way, it's so simple to put it on the diagonal. (*see note*)

as for putting two bikes in next to each other -- you can do it but it will a tight fit. here's a pic of my WRF and an XR400 in my tacoma...

as you can see the handlebars bounce against each other, and you'll have to run the tie downs thru the front wheels. that's a pain in the behind...

(*) note: if you do put the bike straight in, get a wheel chock or weld a reinforcing bar across the bed. otherwise, the bed will soon be bent into the cab and that will cause you big troubles (rust on both ends from the paint rubbing off every time you hit a bump). so get a bed bar from demello offroad, or similar reinforcement means.

If you put the rear tire on the tail gate it'll fit on a diagonal in the double cab easy. Thats what I did in mine. My bed is way shorter than a double cab bed. Now I have a trailer cause its easier though. The tail gate can easily support the weight of the rear tire on it. It's not the best way to transport a bike but it works fine. you can just get a 6'ramp that the bike sits on in the bed too. This will keep all the weight off of the tail gate even though part of the ramp and bike will rest on it.

I don't have the same 'yota as you, but the method that works for my '92 xtracab longbed should be fine, as long as the bike(s) will fit straight in the bed (with the rear wheels @ the tailgate hinge, or on it).

Get one of each size fork support made by PC Racing

BTW, I haven't gotten the "mini-bike" one yet, so far I've been using a cut down 2x4 which works well, but I'm going to get the other one as it's much "cleaner".

Load each bike so that the wheels line up on the inner edge of the wheel wells (this should give you enough room in the middle) & use the short support on the first bike loaded in, & the long one on the second, this way the second bike's bars should be higher than the first & the bikes won't beat each other to death.

I typicaly only tie-down the front of the bikes, but as an extra percaution, I always run a tie-down through the rear wheels, from one side of the bed to the other, in case the front ones come loose or fail.

That is just the bed length. The tailgate would be around another 18".

I was refering to having them in with the tailgate down.
