Slide in Truck Camper tie downs

I know this is the Towing section, but there is no Hauling section, so....
If any of you are hauling a slide in truck camper like I do, I wanted to pass on some info that may be helpful.

I just ordered Torklift front tiedowns N2410 which are made specifically for the Nissan Titan XD. When they arrived, I inspected them and they are a well built product and should last many, many years!
However, the instruction manual is wrong...at least for my truck built 03/16.
The manual shows two holes under the frame that are needed to thread bolts through the frame to their ultimate destination where they will bolt on the tiedown. I only have one hole in my frame, not two.

This little issue snowballs into another issue later in the installation, but I did notify Torklift and I don't need to go into that here. But if anyone with a slide in camper is getting ready to pull the trigger on these mounts, let me know and I'll walk you through what I had to do to make the install work.

One more thing...the bolts that hold the bed to the frame are held on by Loctite.... I wish that had been noted in the instructions!

I have been looking around everywhere for information on Torklift Tie-Downs. I have a 2017 XD, and the spec sheet only lists compatibility through 2016. So they tell me they don't carry anything for my rig. I have been thinking about just ordering the N2410 for the front and the N3404 for the back. But haven't pulled the trigger due to too much uncertainty. But I'm thinking it should fit? Any thoughts?

I'm pretty sure the rear ones will fit because the mounting holes at the back are used for other accessories that are sold for both model years. However the front could be different.... I could take some pics of the front mounting holes and you can match them up.

A gun is like a parachute...if you need one, and don't have one...You'll never need one again.
