The Rago Fabrication Toyota Tacoma Bed Stiffeners solve a known problem that Tacoma's acquire over time. If you have a camper shell, bed rack, or use your Tacoma to off-road frequently, the rear sheet metal channels are known to crack over time because of added stress and weight to the vehicle. Our bed stiffeners will strengthen the bed of your truck and do not interfere with your stock bed mat.

Our brackets mount on the bottom using existing bolt holes and to the side of the bed with (3) 1/2" bolts which requires drilling. The brackets come finished in a hammer black powder coat for durability and resistance to weather. The installation is easily completed within a half an hour. These fit 1st, 2nd, & 3rd Generation Tacomas across all trims levels.

These mounts are NOT compatible with bed extenders. 

Modification may be required if you have a plastic bed liner.

Please Note: During installation it's important to use a Step Bit (Unibit) to prevent cracking, rather than a regular Drill Bit.

Getting Camper Shell for 2020 Toyota Tacoma short bed. Watched multiple YouTube videos about Bed Stiffeners and was guided to Rago. Very nice looking and sturdy. Easy install and BAD ASS looking. Can't wait to get the camper shell on now. I ordered and got the Stiffeners the next day. That is when I realized they were based in AZ. Got to buy the mounting plates for my axe and shovel soon. Appreciate the awesome product. SOLID!!

Thanks John! We truly appreciate the time taken to leave us an awesome review! Our shipping is super quick it also does help you're here in AZ! :)

Hi Robert,

Lugnut (Johnstown, OH)
Bed Stiffeners for Tacoma

The bed stiffeners arrived securely packaged. I was able to install them without incident. I was impressed with their thickness and the fact that they are fabricated from stainless steel to prevent any possibility if rusting in the future. Although the need for these is being debated, I felt that for the value they are cheap insurance to avoid bowing of the bed from the cap I've installed.
