Nice job, I really need to do this mod. Where did you get your d-rings? Straight from your local Toyota? How much a piece?

I got them from TRDParts4U. Here is a link:
http://trdparts4u.com/PD-PT785-35054.aspx?MakeID=1

If you check a few posts back someone posted a link to place where you can get after market generic d-rings for much less. I prefer the Toyota rings because they come with everything you need to mount the rings basically anywhere in the bed. Even if they are a little more expensive they are worth IMHO. It is nice to have options.

IMO this is one of the best mods you can do to your truck if you frequently haul stuff in the bed. I had to use a huge cheater bar to get one of my torx bolts out. Oddly, the other one came out fairly easy. Great write-up...

Thanks for the direct link. $19/pair isnt bad and I'd want the Toyota ones too.

Tacoma Bed D-Rings

I ordered and received a pair of the D-RiIngs. Your expanation and pics are very useful. Was it necessary to increase the hole size in the D-Ring in order for the bed liner bolt to fit?

Thanks,
Dennis

Thx!

Just ordered these D rings based on your description/pictures. Believe it or not, local Canadian dealer has an asking price of $90 for 2 D rings!!!! Can you imagine??? Same ones that the Texas TRDParts4u.com site are asing $20 US for. Even after exchange and shipping I'll be getting for less than 50%. Dealers here are crooks! Truly appreciate the usefulness of this forum.

Well I finally installed them. Easy mod. Took about 30 minutes, the bed bolts came off pretty easy, one actually came out real easy, glad I had a reason to check it. I didn't have the cahonies to cut a hole in the bed mat yet. I will!

D-Rings and Bed Mat

I drilled holes in my bed mat and put the D-Rings on top of the mat using the bed liner bolts. This saved me from cutting the mat and it added a bit of security against theft of the mat. I used washers to build up below the mat then reinstalled the bed liner hold down bolts.

Cool mod! I think I'll have to do this. I have an '09 and it has 4 D rings (corners) but the middle would be convenient. I'm going to take a closer look at my bed tomorrow.

Thanks for the great info and writeup.

You have four D-rings?

There's the two on the bed floor by the tailgate... Then where are the other two?
