    JUST A TIE DOWN BAR I MADE FOR MY SPORTBIKE FOR NOW. LOOKING INTO TURBO
    Hey, I Am New Here And Have Already Introduced Myself, What I Was Wondering Is, If A Tie Down System Was Available For The 2005 To 2007 Tacoma. Would People Be Interested, The Reason I Asked Is I Came Up With Something That Bolts To The Bottom Of The Bed And Is Mainly Used For Motorcycle Tie Down And Is 1000% Stronger Then The Rail System That Comes With The Truck, You Can Also Use The Canyon Dancers With It. So I Would Like Some Feed Back To See If I Should Market This Product....or Is There Something Else Available ?

    I'd be interested in hearing more about it. Literally 1000% stronger? Or just a whole lot stronger?

    If there is a market for steps for a short dog to get on a tall bed, there is a market for anything. I'm sure you will find some people would be interested.

    How would this be different than the D rings in the bed floor?

    WELL THE "D" RINGS ONLY CONNECT TO A SMALL AREA. MY SYSTEM HAS STEEL ON BOTH SIDES OF THE BED, TOP AND BOTTOM.

    I'd think about going in for the rear suspension TSB if you haven't done so already.

    They replace your rear leaf springs for ones with an extra leaf. If you have the non-TRD, they give you Bilstein shocks all around.

    Looks good, but I did something myself so don't really need it... So far 6 D-rings has been enough for everything I do, and I still have 2 more bed bolts if I want to add another set.

    Thanks! I had to modify them to fit. (bored out the hole to fit the bolts, and trimmed the washer on the bolt to fit around the ring) They were called "rope rings" on a trailer supply store, only $1 or so each. So I'm sure you could modify them, or get them made to fit and market it for less than the toyota add-a-ring set ($40 IIRC) that goes on the sides of the bed with backing plates.

    Other people on toyotanation have done the same thing, and one person found stainless steel ones he modified as well. I'm sure there would be a market for people that don't want to or can't modify them to fit.

    Or post up what you've come up with over there as well. Lots of people with bikes are looking for better tie downs.

    THE REASON I MADE MINE THIS WAY IS SO I CAN FIT 2 BIKES BACK THERE. MIN TOO HAS METAL UNDER THE BED FOR ADDED STRENGTH. IF I WAS TO SELL IT, IT WOULD BE A KIT INCLUDING INSTRUCTIONS AND A 1/2 INCH DRILL BIT

    Nice! So it has a solid bar under the bed? That's cool! I didn't do the Toyota kit for price, and the fact I was worried the bed would crack. So I just used the bolts that hold the bed to the frame. If those crack or come out I have bigger problems! :D

    You're solution would be great for people without an air compressor, impact wrench, and #45 or #55 (i forget which) Torx bit for it. Nothing less than an impact wrench would take out the bed bolts on my truck.
