    I don’t see an aftermarket alternative available right now. Am I missing something? The factory rails are egregiously expensive.

    If someone knows of any quality replacements, please direct me to them.

    You have never had a LandCruiser, have you?... :spending::spending::spending:

    and this I supposed to be a work truck, not a play truck. Trying to keep costs to a minimum. Maybe I can talk Jerry into making an alternative.

    I ended up buying the factory bed rail tie down system from the dealership. I should have it in hand next tuesday or Wednesday. I’ll do a little pic dump of the install and give my thoughts. I am assuming it’s almost identical to the tie down rail system on my 2015 Tacoma.

    Installed in the Lowe’s parking lot in roughly 20 minutes. Simple install.

    one thing to note: the rivnuts are simple to install. However, you will need to choose one or the other for where you want the hardware to go, as they didn’t provide enough to fill all the holes. image.jpgimage.jpg

    Neat job to make the JT more functional. Amazon is my go-to for bags of rivnuts

    The rivnuts come w/ the Mopar bed rails. The ones supplied are of a different design than the style of rivnuts that I also source from Amazon.

    And for people’s future reference, if they buy a used set of these.

    Here are the Mopar instructions:
