Fit and Compatibility of Truck Bed Tie Downs with a Hard Plastic Bed Liner that Covers Metal BedRail


will this product work with a truck that has a hard plastic bed liner installed over the bed rails?


Expert Reply:

It sounds like you are wanting to know if the Pilot Bully Clamp Truck Bed Movable Tie Downs # WTD-823 can be installed over the hard plastic bed liner that covers the rail.

I spoke to my contact at Pilot and he said that the inner rail would need to be connected to the bare metal rail while the rail that you can see in the bed of your truck would be fine to have the plastic bed liner installed over. I have linked an image for you to better see which part will mount on the inner underside of the frame to the metal surface.

I also noticed you were looking at the Erickson Retractable Tie-Down Anchors # EM01003. If your truck is one that is listed these will be compatible with a hard plastic bed liner as well. Some models listed will require some modification.
Works with:
1998-2014 Ford F Series trucks with 6' and 8' beds
1993-2012 Ford Rangers
2000-2013 Chevy/GMC trucks
1995-2015 Dodge Ram Trucks - rail cap cut required for 2009-2015 trucks

I have linked both above mentioned parts to this page for your viewing and purchasing convenience.
