    Hey Folks;

    The post(s) I read about this seem to imply that we have to make our own? they can't be gotten from Toyota? or was it just cheaper?

    Unless I missed it, I did not see them on the Toyota accessories page. If they can be gotten from Toyota, do they come w/bolt, etc? Anyone have a link or part number for ordering?

    Or you can go to a different site and buy just the D-rings and do alittle modification to the rings and use the bed bolts to anchor them down. I got 5 for $5 plus S&H so it was a lot cheaper than the toyota ones. But its personal preference.

    I've got a small issue with paying $19 for a D-Ring and backer plate. If I want to install 4 of these, then that is going to start getting pricey. I picked up some angle galvanized steel and 4 d-rings from a tractor supply store for about $20.

    I thought that everybody liked getting screwed by the dealership :(


    I didn't realize that $19 would get you a pair. I thought it was for 1. The price isn't that bad then.

    Thanx for the TRD site...yes, the non OEM are cheaper, but not so much so that it's worth it for me to mess with them...only getting one set.

    What alterations need done to the cheaper 5 for $5 rings?

    Do you need to bore the hole bigger for the large bed bolt to fit through?

    I got mine through TRDParts and paid $29.37 shipped (2 in a pack). They match the OEM ones in the rear of the bed.


    Also, so anyone considering this knows, you do NOT use the backer plate if you are using the bed bolts. The backer plate is to be used if you drill new holes for your rings.

    there is a small lip on the bed bolts that holds the washer on. It has to be filed off to get the washer off and the d-ring on.

    Sorry for the misunderstanding but I asked about the alterations to the cheap D-rings.

    Regarding the bed bolts, I left the washer on and used an angle grinder to cut off enough for a flush seat. I could've ground the threads down but had no problem doing it this way. No alterations needed done to the OEM D-rings I used.

    Yeah, I don't think there are any set rules on modifying the cheap d-rings. There is such a variety of d-rings, that you might find some that only require removing the bed bolt washer.

    I ordered a set of the factory ones to install using the bed bolts. I'll sell you mine and go with the cheaper ones.

    I ordered the TRD ones b/c I didn't look at what needed to be done first. I'll second this one. If you are using the bed bolts you dont use the backer plate. thats 50% of the cost of the factory ones. Go get some cheap rings on the bed bolts.

    the cheap ones all you have to do is enlarge the hole and than on the bed bolt just grind down the ribs that hold the washer on. No cutting of the washer or anything like that. Its very simple and only takes about an hr to an hr and a half.

    OK, so you do need to enlarge the hole. I thought so but wanted to be sure. The OEM ones do not need altered but I am always interested in saving money.

    I am looking for 2 more for the middle bolts and will likely order the cheaper ones.

    I dont remember which size drill bit it was but its a pretty big bit. And than fir the bolt you will either need a dremel tool or a grinder.
