    my truck came with one of these at each corner of the bed> im not sure if they're OEM or not. Does anyone know how heavy of a load they can handle safely??? Can anyone tell me where i can find something stronger if need be?

    Im not asking about the clamp, but about the actual part that's bolted` to the bed wall

    Those can hold quite a bit of weight. Should be safe to tie down anything you can put in your bed.

    i had my quad strapped down to those and the tail gate didnt shut all the way and it rolled out and they held it fine. so i would say a decent amount and they are oem if im not mistaken.

    Back to square one after the 2001. So...
    They are OEM, but I have no clue on their load rating.

    Oh and incase it helps. Im hoping it can handle a 600 street bike. dry weight is 397. add oil and maybe some gas and its about 420-430. but it would only need to handle half the weight because i have a Bed Buddy (http://motocross.transworld.net/files/2008/07/bedbuddy2_300.jpg) but im concerned about the angle the tie downs have to go inorder to get fromt he handle bar to the far right and left hook points when putting two streetbikes side by side. it seems like they'd be right against the fairings. So incase that is so, i'd like to know if i can use the bed hook points if need be.

    yea i was goin up a really steep hill and didnt leave it in gear, the tailgate was not latched all the way for some reason and all the weight of the quad against the tail gate pushed it open. and it hung about half way off the tail gate. but the straps and the bed hooks held it just fine

    They can hold a LOT!!
    Heres how I know...
    We have an automatic car wash at the dealer I work at. One day I put it through the wash with my tie-down straps still hooked thru the loops your asking about.
    I was BS'ing with someone when I hear a loud noise!! I run over to the wash and see that it wrapped the strap around the one wash arm tht goes up and down, and it was lifting my truck about 2 feet off the ground!!
    Once I knew the wash and my truck were OK we were laughing pretty hard.
    So, yes they can hold "a lot"...:eek:

    Don't worry about that. It's a 5 year old thread.

    Call a local Toyota parts department.

    Tell them you're looking for the bed tie downs for a 1999 Tacoma.

    They'll say "yes we have them," or "no, we don't."

    Then ask them to confirm the part number.

    Write part number down.

    Buy from dealer, or go online with correct P/N.

    Do you need the mounting screws too? Or just the hooks?

    You may need to pop into a dealership and have some look that up for you. Not only will you get the correct PN, you 'might' find its a reasonable price for such a small item. The key to successful online searching is likely the exact name Toyota calls it, which may not be a logical name to us.

    You could also try junk yards. Couple bucks should get you everything there.

    Get the part number then go to Amazon for them, saves a ton of $$.

    Unless Amazon isn't cheaper.

    Then that's silly.

    no need really, especially when ebay or amazon might be china repops.

    dealer sells them for $8 each and screws I think are $1 each

    this is one of those few items where the dealer is selling the part at a "normal" price just like with the light bulbs
