I have tied down both ways ,whats funny is some peopl wont tie to the frame ,but they would never hook a winch cable or a jerk strap to there axle to pull some one out .I hook a chain to the rear drive ahead in low range chain the front bump the cluth and let every thing settle put a saftey cain on the front and go .I dont care for straps they can get cut or chafe on a long haul ,there not bad I just like my steel chains .If your rig is looseing up then some thing is not right .The leting the susspension move thing is great till you get a panic stop or have to do some deffensive driveing and every thing is swaying in different dirrections .And lastly the factory puts little rectangle cutout all over on your frame and unibody ,those are for tieing down and recovery .
My 2 cents
