    Great mod for a $10 investment (bought the army surplus D-Rings - 5 for $5), and about 15 min install...

    Definitely a useful mod...

    I truly use my truck as such... The side rails are fine for keeping loads from shifting laterally, but the D-Rings are way better for anchoring things down...

    Our trucks should come like this from the factory...

    I have an ATV and just sold my YZ250F... The D-rings work so much better for strapping down either...

    Great mod! Do you need air tool to loosen the bolts? iirc I think they're T55 Torx right?

    You should have sold the ATV and kept the YZ :D
    Nice job though!

    Awesome mod. I ordered my army rings on Aug 14. Still a no show. But I'm excited to do this mod.
