    Hi everybody, I just bought my Tacoma a month ago. I went to haul something but I realized there are only 2 d rings for tie downs at the end of the bed. Is there any way I can use oem ones for the front. I had to remove the rail system to put on my tonneau cover. Any ideas?
    Thanks Doug

    For my "Roll X" I had to trim about 4 inches off each end the front rail (to keep the front rail). I use thye front rail to hang the shovel, etc.

    I think that is pretty obvious. But they are a really good alternative to the bed bolt rings for most loads and can be located almost anywhere in the bed.

    The OP stated he'd like an OEM type for the front of the bed. I wouldn't trust securing much of a load with any type ring bolted to the plastic/composite bed.
