I put the t-track system in mine, great addition. The factory tie downs are in the most inconvenient locations if you want to actually, you know, tie something down.

That factory tie downs are cheap too as they do bend pretty easy.

I just got tired of trying to get a strap tight by hooking on the underside of the rails -
you just can't do it.

With the t-track system, you can actually lift the back of the truck using two of the tie-downs, a strap and lifting equipment. Plus you can put the tie-down anywhere along the length of the track with a simple half-twist and slide.

I've got some Bullyring poplocks. They work pretty well and are nice to use on taller loads.

Here's a link to the orignal thread.
