|The new 4-door Ford and Nissan small trucks all have these way too short beds that require dropping the tailgate to carry your bikes. Anyone have the new Toyota 4-door Tacoma and carry your bikes in the bed. I use a Grabber bike rack for truck beds, no holes to drill. I've always had trucks with an 8' bed, but am thinking about going smaller now that I don't work out of it anymore. Still gotta keep a truck though, being in Texas and all.|

|do you mean with both wheels still attached?
most road bikes are approx 170cm total length, or about 67 inches, or 5'7".
So trucks with 8 or 6 foot beds are OK. Anything less would require angling of the bikes or removal of the wheel.
Is it OK to drive a Toyota Truck in Texas?

|I'm able to fit my bikes in the bed using a fork mount with the tailgate raised. Great truck, btw - lots of room inside, enough out back to do everything I do, good power. My only complaint is that it wasn't available with a manual transmission and the V6.|| |
