What do you mount to your Toyota factory bed rails?

    I just ordered 8 of these:
    https://shop-hondogarage.com/collec...ms/products/toyota-utility-track-t-nut-4-pack
    to get rid of my factory tie down points due to interference with my ordered Snugtop.

    What do you all bolt to your bed rails? Axe, tie down points, hi-lift jack, etc? Let's see your setup.

    One idea I have is eye bolts spaced over the 3 rails to then find a cover of some sort to hide valuables out of site when needed. Anyone know of a cover that fits well and serves this purpose?

    I used T nuts like you have with eye bolts, nuts and washers to give me the ability to tighten them down. If you notice I locked two eye bolts together to make my jack secure.

    I’m tagging this. I’d like to mount a rotopax for water when hunting with my dogs.

    Gotcha. Apologies, as I assumed it was just a run of the mill t-slot nut.

    Watching here for ideas - and same issue, want something I can take in/out of rail without the task of sliding.
