    Did a search, found nothing. Anyone know where to buy the tie down? Mine broke, so battery is loose in there.

    I was looking for an online source rather than Toyota dealership

    Try any shop that sells batteries, most will have battery holdowns that will work.

    I would avoid bungees if you offroad.
    A battery tie down usually consists of two long j-hooks and a bracket that goes on top of the battery. The hooks grab the battery tray.

    A Boaters World or West Marine will sell you stainless hold downs, then you never have to worry about breaking them again, or looking at the rust.

    Thank you! I ended up buying some $4 one at oreilly, and it will do for now.

    I asked a few of the fabricator people on here If they ever thought of making a custom one and sell but got no bites thus far.
