E.C. RatRods, you’ve got to tell us what your working on every time you start a new thread. What your asking is not the same on the different styles of trucks. Help us help you.

rib line might be referring to the "belt line" around the cab?

My god did I mess up my first message. Let me start over. I have a 1950 chevy 3100. I am putting the bed on for mark up purpose. I am trying to make sure my bed height is correct by trying to see what the correct distance is from the top of the front bed panel to the belt line under the back window.

Are you installing a standard wood bed? The wooden blocks between the frame and the underside of the bed sills dictate the height of the bed.
