I have to figure out exactly where do I place my cross braces in my bed? When I got it the front and back cross rails were already welded in So How far apart should they be and how far up from the bottom lip of the bed? And the angle strips that attach and run the length of the bed that sits on the cross sills location?

EC, if you don't get what you need from the mar-k link, PM me about measurements. I found that they did not have all the info needed there free without buying the full instructions sheet.
