At 12 per order, and one beer per ring, that's a 12-pack per run...not a bad idea

I know what you are saying. When you torque the bolt down it does fit. It causes the ring to become a little tighter though, but it works.

However, for comparison, these d-rings are rated for a 1,000lbs WLL with a break strength of 3,000lbs, and theyíre considerably smaller.



Not a bad idea on the liability side. Iíll print out a general release of liability letter and include it with the D-rings. I personally have no concern about these breaking before any straps that I use.

It doesnít interfere with the OEM washer, but with the bed bolt itself - see the picture in the original post.

Without grinding the material on the d-ring, part of the head of the bolt rests on the d-ring hinge and doesnít sit flush with the d-ring washer/base plate. So, the tensile stresses in the bolt are not evenly distributed on the bolt head, causing a localized stress point that wasnít part of the fastener selection criteria, which could cause premature failure with the cyclical loading these bolts will see.

Will it probably be fine? Yes. But I donít want to stress the bed bolts with loads they werenít expected to take - theyíre pretty critical bolts which experience enough stresses, especially if you off-road.

Itís a cheap / easy mod to not risk the potential of damaging the bed bolts with loads they were never intended to take. Itís your truck, so your call - to each his own is my motto.

Iíll shoot you a PM. Wonít have them this weekend. I donít carry stock since Iím not making a profit, so I wait until I get a couple orders in to order some.

Appreciate the offer with forscan! I picked up a ODB 2 dongle and have been having fun with it myself, so Iím covered.

Update for all that have ordered thus far. I just received shipping notification that the d-rings will be here Tuesday. So Iíll have them shipped out by the end of next week to everyone via USPS priority.

I used mine again today to take some wheels to the tire shop to dismount the tires (selling some spare Gen 2 beadlock capable rims). I highly recommend those 2Ē straps I linked in the original post. Theyíre huge, well built from my experience thus far, and just kinda fun to use. My 2 cents.

Couple things to note for GEN1, imagine its the same for GEN2
Use a T50 PLUS bit. A T50 bit is a tad too small and you will most likely strip the bed bolts.

Bed bolts are torque to 59lb-ft
