The best camper tie-downs and turnbuckles for your 2004 Ford F-350 with an 8 foot bed are from TorkLift because they offer the best strength and stability due to bolting directly to your truck's frame. The correct fit for the front tie-downs is going to depend on if your F-350 has running boards or steps that extend underneath your truck bed, though the rear tie-downs will be the same no matter what.

- Rear: TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # TLF3001

- Front (WITHOUT Step/Running Board): TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # TLF2011
- Front (WITH Step/Running Board) TorkLift Custom Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # TLF4006

As for turnbuckles the best option is the Locking FastGun because they are the easiest to use and give you the most security for your investment because they come with locks, and are stainless steel to prevent any type of corrosion. You can choose from either Black or Gray for color.

- Black: TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Tie-Downs # TLS9529-2-LK

- Gray: TorkLift Locking FastGun Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Tie-Downs # TLS9522-2-LK

The FastGun are a premium option though, so you can also go with the TorkLift SpringLoad XL Turnbuckles for Frame-Mounted Camper Tie-Downs # TLS9050A.

You will need to order a quantity of 2 of the SpringLoad XL. These turnbuckles aren't quite as simple to use as the FastGun, and don't lock, but they are a less expensive alternative which I wanted to mention for you.
