I have room for a couple of additional D rings on the two sides so I could actually set it up with five support points. Talk about over kill.
I do have a dry box in my front bay which I used to have my floor extend under about 1"-2" which gave it fairly good stability. I recently cut my floor down and now I just rig a few extra straps to pull the floor back and against the edge of the drybox. With a couple of straps up front it's super stable and doesn't move around at all. Hope that helps.
