    I made a bracket for the corners which makes hauling dirtbikes much easier.

    The spring in mine is broken, doesnt lock into place so well now. Makes it really hard to get off.
    I think when i was tightning my strap the hook wasent locked right, bent the spring or something. I think they have a weight capacity stamped into them.
    Im doing the d-ring mod soon.

    I would go with the extra D-rings. Before I bought my truck, I went riding with my buddie in his Tacoma and they held but I was nervous the whole way. I think I saw a picture of the bracket mentioned above. If it is the same one, I like this one. Maybe he can show a picture?

    Most people use The factory D-rings. There are a few right ups on how to do the install, if you search you will find them.
