Default Are the bed tiedown hooks staying on?

Register to stop seeing this ad!

Looking at the new U.S. test truck (white color) pictures, I noticed the bed was missing the cargo tiedown hooks on the edges of the bed. Did Mahindra change there minds and remove them?

I believe the last I heard was that they removed them for now.

Default Function is better!

The reason I like the TR40 and 20 is because they are a real truck not a "show truck". I am pretty sure I will be buying a TR40 and don't care about looks! As long as the truck works hard and gives me good mpg I could care less about its looks..... Hooks would be useful and I hope they don't sell out for looks!

Default here here

I like the work truck and want hooks on the bed!

Bed hooks are a good way to secure a load when hauling and are desirable for sure.

The modern method of inside the bed tie downs used by so many pickups now I am sure give better economy because they are a little more slippery. I wonder if anybody knows how much of a loss they cause in economy when installed vs a more slippery design approach.

The hooks will not drive me away if not present but its a nice feature.

Heres another vote for the hooks to stay.
If not , can they at least be a bolt on accessory?

I'm looking at this truck as a work truck. Keep the hooks.
