    I think people are talking about the factory bed rings and the factory bed rail tie downs like they are the same thing

    Do they rattle and clank everytime you hit a bump?

    People need to remember what while the bike weighs 440lbs, the forces acting upon the bike in transport will increase that. 440lbs at one G, versus 660lbs at a 1.5G turn. Not saying I recommend a 1.5 G turn with bikes in the back, but you've seen the retards who drive out there.

    The whole bed is made from SMC (fiberglass-reinforced nylon), so now the bed sidewall flexes instead of the bedrail.

    And the screws are most likely 95,000 psi shear strength, not 95,000 lb. ;) If they are 3/16" screws, then the cross-section area is only 0.0276 sq. in., so 2600 lb shear. Most mil standard and NAS fasteners are no stronger than SAE Gr 8, but they are more consistent for fracture toughness

    Nothing, as long as they're used properly. I have some 2" wide, ratcheting load straps that could easily destroy them. If in doubt, use the D-rings on the bed floor.

    Goofy use of "G" aside, normal driving isn't the main problem.

    Crash avoidance (or impact) is.

    Yep, only difference between most mil spec fasteners and hardware store is traceability and pedigree.

    Good question... I thought they eould and had planned to use a small zip tie on the fronts, however they only rattle when hitting a decent size bump.

    The factory tie downs are fine ( D rings ) for the rear, I've thought about buying the front factory tie downs from toyota for the 2013 models which are right in front of the wheel wells on both sides. I checked them out on the new trucks at the dealership.
    I didn't buy them cause of the price they wanted and toyota said there is prob some reinforcing plate behind them, compared to pre 2013.

    The cleats are marginal at best, they work good for what I use them for but dirt bikes and large heavy crap like that would make me look for an alternative solution.

    I'd use a trailer. :D

    Note that I wasn't addressing you. As I said, there's nothing wrong with the side, bed rail system if used properly. Two dirt bikes would likely exceed the load rating of the aluminum steel OEM rails; I wouldn't want to use them for that much weight.
