Hook-Ups the Dirtbike Solution

I recently went into the local shop to purchase a "bedbuddy", but when i got there i was informed that it wouldnt work with a tacoma with the plastic bed. I was bummed out when a guy in the store told me about this machine shop about 20 minutes away that made a tie down point for the tacomas. i go to the shop and both the guys ride and are supernice and hand me this 3 pound bag of 2 quarter inch steel plates and the fittings. I was thinking that the factory bed Rails would bend, but the smart thing they did was to use both, the one on the bedside and the one on the back of the cab. Overall these things are a great buy-- super strong and durable and i feel they will never need to come off they were 50 bucks and heres the link

Using the stock plastic tie downs did make me nervous.

Just got mine in the mail today. Thought about building some but you can't really beat the price with the powdercoating and all. They are very nice.
I would say I would post some pics but they would just look identical to the OPs.
Thanks again KTMRIDER.

just put them on, very easy to install... took me longer to find my 1/2" wrench to tighten the bolts down than it did to put them on

I wonder if they would sell just some of the aluminum t-nuts... those would be super handy to have laying around for making a hi-lift jack mount and stuff like that... gonna have to ask them.

Other than using the d-rings onto the bed bolts this is a clever gadget. Thanks for sharing ktmrider.
