    I've got a 2010 AC and want more tie down options. Can I get the D-rings and replace them for the silver bolts/washers in the bed of the truck?

    I would suggest painting them (black Rustoleum works well).

    Ted, right at the top of the page there's a pulldown called "mods and tutorials". Take a look in there, plenty of good stuff.

    My car died and I got the tacoma two years earlier than expected! I've got a steep learning curve here I'm sure. I've been reading, but there's so much info to take in! Thanks for the tips!
