    As most folks know Toyota put a non-adjustable battery tie down on the truck which means virtually no aftermarket battery fits. While the factory tie down can be drilled out to fit a normal J-bolt I wanted an OEM bolt-on solution. Turns out Tundra uses a tie down with adjustable J-bolts on both ends. Part numbers:

    74481-0C030 tie down
    74451-0C020 rear j-bolt
    90080-18073 nut

    The j-bolt is tad long but works. Picture shows the new tie down installed and the original Tacoma one next to it.

    I got generic J hook bolts on Amazon for less than $7 that fit the oem hold-down bracket. Cut to length. And that was cause corrosion got to one of the bolts; otherwise, the OEM setup worked for the first battery replacement I got, a Walmart group 24

    The OEM parts were under $15 total FWIW.

    I just did this to my Tacoma! Although, I already knew about the Tundra bracket because my last truck was a Tundra! I even bought the same battery you have!

    This Tundra tie-down, 74481-0C030 tie-down, does it fit nicely/fits without modification over an aftermarket 27F battery? I had to gently massage the OEM tie down in my Tacoma to fit aftermarket 27F batteries, as they are just a tiny bit larger than the 27F that came originally in it. Even with some gentle persuasion, it still leaves marks on the outside casing of the battery. I'm hoping this would fit much better.

    thanks
