I’ll given them a shot again. They didn’t have them a couple of months ago when I placed the order at the stealership.

I also checked the doors. All four had seam sealer. It seems I made it under the radar thus far.

I have 4 tie downs and will have to check the rest on the lot when I go by next time. It looks like we could have 8 total, anyone know if you can put two on each side up by the cab?

I don't recall and extra set of holes up by the cab. I had my bed spray lined, so it could be that they were covered with bed liner if they are there. Right now, I have two up front and four back by the tailgate area.

This is what I’m talking about. This is the drivers side by the cab. 9E9856C4-37EE-4F34-977D-3181474E38C7.jpeg

Those holes are pretty far apart for another tie down. Possibly for an accessory? The space between the tie down and the lower hole look like they are spaced close enough to rotate the tie down so it sits a little higher.

The top hole, in the pic, was one used in the front hinge brackets, on my new Undercover Tonneau cover--the hinges not only clamp to the underside of the rail, but bolt into this hole, left and right sides, creating on of the best hinge systems I've seen.--

I'll have had my Ranger for a week tomorrow and today I noticed (while showing the truck off to a friend in the pkg lot of an Outback) the missing tie-downs. Not a huge issue for me, but gaping, unfilled threaded holes bother the engineer-OCD-beejeezus out of me. Looks like they are M8x25mm, so I'll just pick four up at ACE and call it a wash.

Truck was built 7/31/2019 and has the seam sealant. That was a big 'WHEW!' as I am moving it from Texas to coastal NC and plan to do a lot of beach driving.

Thanks to the OP and others for pointing this out and offering solutions!

Make sure you give the under body a good hosing after your beach forays. Salt water plays hell on vehicles.
