I've got a 2007 Duramax. The guy I bought it from had two rails in the bed, 5th wheel mounts, where the receiver mounts. I was going to remove them and give them back to him, since I will likely never use one.

In any case, when I look under the bed I see some 3/4-1" bolts attached to the box frame of the truck. My question is were those mounts part of the original bed attachment to the truck or was that all part of the 5th wheel install.

If someone has stock pics of how bed is attached, would help so much.

Thanks. Can get pics if need.

those bolts come with the rail kit.....they supply a fish wire that you use to get the bolts into place.

Here is a picture of the brackets. This is from the passenger rear wheel view on frame. So these brackets were never intended to support the bed?

Do you know if there were already bolts in this section of the bed before the 5th wheel install? How many total bolts hold the bed down from the factory?

I would hate to give away the brackets if I need them.
