Hi all -
My '09 TRD package came with the bed liner and tie downs on rails, along with 2 'D rings' in the back of the bed.
But for whatever reason, Toyota decided to EXclude a pair of D rings in the front right/left of the bed. Wondering why, but who cares----fact is, I NEED them to tie down my sportbike for track days. I just had my first track day (school, 2-day) and am now of course hooked. I rented a U-haul motorcycle trailer for this and that worked out fine but of course I saw a bunch of guys who just tied their bikes down right in the back of their beds... why own/rent a trailer esp if you just have 1 bike? Anyway, I digress...
I thought about taking it to a dealer or independent place, but dealer may be pricey to drill/install a pair of them in the front corners. What have any of you done in order to get 'D rings' into the front of your bed? I know you have to drill to get this done and although I'm a DIY'er for a fair amount of things I don't know that I want to try and tackle this, esp where the integrity/strength of the rings are concerned. Any ideas? Thanks.
