Smile Installed D-Rings in the Bed (Pics)

I love cheap and easy mods so here is one that I did today. Special Thanks to Mr.Grimm from TN and all of the others who have done this before me. Toyota should have built the Tacoma with these from the factory but oh well. Enjoy:

Step 1: Assemble materials and tools
-Toyota Part:PT785-35054
-T-55 Socket
-Paint
-Dremel tool
-Speed Square
-Tape measure
-Sharpie
-Razor Knife



Step 2: Locate Bolts (I found a few of them hiding under my bed mat)


Step 3: Remove Bed bolts


Step4: Use Dremel to grind down rings below washer (this must be done to remove washer)


Step 5: Remove washer and prime for paint


Step 6: Paint and Apply Anti-Seize


Step 7: Assemble


Step 8: Re-install


Step 9: Measure for bed mat cut


Step 10: Measure and Mark


Step 11: Cut Bed Mat


Step 12: Done


Enjoy your new mod:

I like the layout of d-rings will probably do the middle as well, with the d-rings i got, i cut the washer off with a cut off wheel easy and quick. just an idea i didnt have my dremel at the time.

is a lot cheaper to get the D rings than getting the extra ones from toyota ( 5 for $5)
Yeah, the bolts in my bed came out easy, of course I did eat my Wheaties this morning....I saw the cheapo D-Rings you referenced but I wanted something that would look like it came straight from the factory. I also wanted something well made.

The Toyota rings will allow you to mount the rings in other places because they come with all necessary hardware. To be honest with you I am not trying to re-invent the wheel here, I thought I would post some pics of what I did in the hope that it might help someone else. Thanks for your contribution.

Nice writeup. Good idea about putting rings in the middle section too.

maybe if they just jacked up the profit margin to the same price as the toyota ones then the would not be called "chepo"

and no they do not bend i have had over 1k pounds and secured it with these without trouble
Hey thanks a lot for your valuable input and informative post.
