Bought used with 53K miles excelllent condition. Has new over the rail bedliner....I want to attach tiedowns but not sure how to do it because the bedliner is covering the rails. What is the best way to do this?

Asked by Jan 06, 2007 at 05:58 PM about the 2001 Dodge Dakota 2 Dr SLT Extended Cab SB

Question type: General

I want to know the best way to attach tiedowns to the rails of the truck bed.  The bedliner covers the rails and I can't see, and don't even know, if it has stake pockets or not.  I might want to put a tonneau cover on later and would need something that wouldn't interfere with that.
Is there a way to do this without drilling, and can I even do it since the rails are covered?????

Hello, I am not sure exactly how to attach these rails, but you can call a place such as auto parts warehouse and have them walk you through it. Here is a link to their rails: Best of luck! CarGrrl
