    i use two aluminum plates (5mm thick) with 2 holes in every plate for each side.
    just two holes in the bed(each side).
    the plate under the bed has to be a little smaller.
    use self locking nuts under the bed.
    thats it !!!

    sorry for my bad grammar:rolleyes:

    and in the back you just have to remove the tail lights and just drill a hole.
    use a big (in german : unterlegscheiibe) wearing part (english??)

    the german word is : ringschraube does it mean ringbolt in english ?

    You should use larger plate washers on the underside. A simple nut could potentially crack the bed or pull through if torqued enough. Otherwise, great idea! :thumbsup:

    He says that he used another steel plate, only a bit smaller, under the bed.

    I think he means he made a steel plate sandwich, with the bed material in the middle.

    Should hold very well, good job OP!

    Gotcha, I thought he did something different. Yeah, that should be pretty damn strong!

    Essentially the same thing. Technically what you have pictured is an eye bolt. A ringbolt is an eye bolt with a ring through the 'eye'

    @ryansummit
    this mod is quick and easy.
    you dont have to remove anything.
    all can be made through the wheel case.
    try to get an eye bolt with a long thread.
    and for the ones in the back use large plate washers.
    the best option is to use stainless steel !!

    Good One. I might look into this. The D rings I placed under the bed bolts are sometimes in a bad spot depending on what I am hauling and this location would be nice.
