Tie down hooks on a 2010 PreRunner

I just bought my 2010 Tacoma PreRunner. It has two rotating hooks on the floor of the bid located near the tailgate. There are two holes in identical places near the other end of the bid.

Should there have been hooks in the front? Did someone forget to install them? Or, Is it just another add-on?

Thanks,

Matt

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

They only come woth 2 at the rear. The holes up front are drain holes. You can install extra "D" rings in the bed.

Ahh... I guess that makes sense. But It makes it almost impossible to tie a motorcycle down.

Are the rails and removable clamps strong enought to support a motorcycle?

Will you damage your bed by installing hooks in the front because of poor draining?

Thanks.

I would definitely do the extra d-ring mod. I put a 4wheeler in mine and used the rails/cleats to secure it near the cab. The rails started to bend up and you could hear things cracking. I wouldn't trust that method if you plan on doing a lot of motorcycle hauling. It's just cheap plastic. Neat concept for the rails, but could be stronger.

Does anyone know how much the extra d-ring's cost at a dealer. I was able to find them at an online store for 20 bucks, but the shipping was ten more.

Are they less than 30 bucks at the dealer?

These are the only places I could find them:

Take out the bolt near the back window on the floor. Leave the drain holes alone.

You'll need to do a little work.

Install the new d-ring and you're set.

Just call the dealer and ask what the price is, I don't think they are too much. If not them, then go with the ones from the armysurplus website.
