The Dodge has a 6'6" bed and full 8 feet with the tailgate down (I have an 08 Ram) Factory tie down points: 4 corners approx 5 or so inches up from the bed and 4 stake pole points, 2 in the front, 2 in the rear. There will also be a lip running along the underside of the bed rails on both sides.
Plastic rope, like that used with boats, holds up well, but it is slick and stiff and can be difficult to tie into a tight knot that stays secure. Strengths The rope is relatively inexpensive and available from all sorts of retailers, including grocery stores, hardware, and discount stores.

I got annoyed at my F150's sub-optimal tie-down arrangement about 7 years ago. After scratching my head for a while, I cut 3 short lengths of unistrut and using galvanized 3/8" lag bolts tied them vertically to the left inside wall: one in back, one in the middle, and one up front.
Replace the tightening bolts, but use a wing nut instead of the standard nut. Slide the mounts over the top of the vertical pipes and tighten the wing nuts firmly. Run the 1" pipe through the #2 collars on both sides of the truck bed. Tighten the wing nuts on the #2 tightening bolts a bit.

It's very easy. I ran it through a small hole in one of the cubby's. Then down along the wheel well to the inside of the frame rail. Run that all the way up to the plug under the drivers seat. Once under the carpet, run it over to the edge that hides all of the other other wires and run it up to the area under the dead pedal.
