1/2" 6"x12" 6061 T651 Aluminum Tooling Flat Sheet Plate Bar Mill Stock

 

I bought this on Amazon when I switched to a 2017 F250 with the aluminum body. 

I cut it into approximately 6" x 4" pieces and replaced the washers underneath.

 

Cost me $20.

I installed the newer fwc tie down system made of plate steel in the composite bed of my 2015 Tacoma. The plates run across the bed, front & rear and are held down by the bed bolts into the truck frame. I have had no problems with this setup.
