    So i've had swing cases on both side of the truck for a few months, and i just realized that now the only tie down spots are in the front of the bed. It really didn't dawn on me when i installed the cases, but now that i have them in...dang it kinda sucks.

    We just went through and upgraded our living room furniture that we've had for probably 10+ years to new stuff and in all the shuffles back and forth from costco, and bringing our old couch to the inlaws, kinda sucks not having the back tiedowns.
    There are some small eyelets in the swing case brackets, but i'm not sure how much they will hold. For the most part, the tail gate was down so i could use the latch hooks, but i dont want to bend those. I have a backlip cover, so i dont really trust the sliding tiedowns on the rails anymore (cheap shit aluminum plates that lower the rail down)

    Anyone have any good solutions?

    Shit, i didn't even think about that! Not a bad idea about just removing the box if need the tie down! Love it!
    Why didn't they just notch the bracket like that from the get go!

    I have the same problem, I was thinking to use the original tie down bracket turn it upside down and drill a hole on the top of the bracket, run a tap through it and use original bolt to fasten it down.

    How do they feel with a ratchet strap cranking down on them?
