    I just got myself a 2009 Tacoma TRD Sport - it features bed rails that have adjustable tie down points.

    What kind of lbs of pull can these support if I am strapping down to them?

    Its in the manual. Its not a lot. Most people put in additional tie downs in the front of the bed, using the bed bolts. check out the sticky for cheap mods.

    I believe it's 200# straight out. Keep in mind if you're pulling at an angle, you can't put a 200 # load on them.

    If I'm not mistaken, the cleats have their max load rating molded right into them. And it's in the low 200 lb range.

    I'd put D-rings on the bed floor to hold up multiple dirt bikes or get a Bed Buddy. People do use them for dirt bikes but I refuse to trust a plastic rail and ring to hold up my bikes.

    i strapped 2 250s in my truck with the bed cleats... scariest 10 mile drive ever. Ide recommend getting some d rings up front or get a bed buddy from CCR sport. thats what I've been rocking for a year now and i have no worries hauling bikes now.

    If I put the D rings on the bed bolts, I assume they're more then strong enough to strap down to securely?

    Bikes are 230's

    I can tell you theyre rated high enough to hold a makeshift hammock and two people :)

    But I definitely wouldn't trust them with my dirt bike

    CCR Sports BED BUDDY motorcycle tie-down bar.
    I put one in my 2005 access cab prerunner to transport two WR 450 dirt bikes. I have been using it since 2005 with no problems. I just bought a new one for my 2012 DC LB 4X4 and installed it today. The new ones dont seem as beefy as the old one, and I had to use washers to space it away from the bed so that the center tie down point would clear the factory tie-down rail. The old one had this center tie-down loop welded at the very edge (towards tail gate) and fit just fine up against the factory rail; the new one was welded closer to center, so I had to space it back.
    In the pics below, the old one is faded.
    This works great for hauling 1-3 motorcycles; I have had two full size 450 dirt bikes and a mini 110 once, but usually just the two 450's.

    Had my ccr bed buddy since 2007. Best way to secure the bikes and moving items. Also gets rid of the flex in the front of the bed.
