Default I need to add tiedowns

My 2014 Ram has a spray-in bed liner and plastic rail covers. There's a molded hole over the rear stake holes, but the fronts are covered and would need to be cut (although the hole location is marked).

Should I just get a set from Mopar? Or are there better tiedowns to get?

12sport will become famous soon enough

The Mopar ones are fine, but really no different or better than the much less expensive aftermarket ones. Cutting out the hole is no big deal - just make sure your knife is sharp and go slow.

I picked up a pair of retracting tie downs from Princess Auto for $26 on sale. They seem to work just fine to me. Just a word of caution that was given to me... Don't ratchet anything down too hard with the tie downs on the bed rails. You can "easily" bend the sides of your truck. If you need to do something really tightly, use the ones inside the bed.
