tie me down
Posted March 03, 2003 - 05:10 AM
i have a 98 ford ranger (std bed with drop in liner, not that skinny one with flare fenders) and am looking for places to tie my bike down. the two hooks on the front bottom of the bed work fine for 1 bike. if i wanna haul more than that, though, it's goona req. more hooks. there are square bed pockets at the front of the bed.
i was looking at drop in pocket anchors at lowes last night, and thoguht the ones they had looked rather chincy .
can anyone give me any advice on effectiveness (or ineffectiveness ) of this type of system for tying down motorcycles, and if you use them, what kind are they and where did you get them?

As for haul'in more than one bike. We always hook the second tie-down into the back of the first. I also use the factory hooks cause they're down lower and this keeps the bike a little more stable.

my ranger has a bedliner, so these are inaccessable less i cut it, and they look like you couldn't get a tie down thru them anyways. so i thik i'll get a set of these "bullrings" and do the same set-up.
thanks for the advice, though... i'm not sure we could get tie-down over to hook it to back of other anyways. it's sumthin to consider, though.
i knew i could get a good lead on TT!
