stepside bed rails for tie downs?

Does anyone see a problem using the inside bed rails as a place to anchor for holding down my dirtbike? I remember people saying the stepside bed is fiberglass with a metal inner shell. My tie down points suck and I wanted one of those bars you drill in to hold bikes but my bed width is too small. This would be an easy solution but I don't know if it is going to be strong enough. Anyone have any thoughts on this?

i have two of this style extra if you want them, the bed sides arent going to be strong enough if your bending the existing tiedown points...
