    Just wondering if anyone has come up with a stronger front bed rail hook
    The factory ones are not strong enough to hold both my dirt-bikes in my small 5 foot bed.
    i have tried to mount D-rings in the front and it was nothing but fail
    i have decide to ask if anyone has come up with a mod to make the front bed rail tie down hooks stronger

    i had to be hooked to the bed rail where the stock ones are now

    Can only be as strong as the bed rail. Your best bet would probably be to double up tie downs with a strap, and go off that strap to your bike... IMO. D-rings would no doubt be better than this though. I suggest trying D-rings again, for safety reasons.

    Bed exender, leather seats, weather tech floor mats, extra d-rings.
    Try these - they mount in the front corners and seem very secure. I put a set on recently after seeing them discussed in another forum. www.Jpmetalfab.com
    Other users are using these to tie down motorcycles and are happy with them.
