Housekeeping (Moderator) Making a Stovebolt Bed & Paint and Body Shop Forums
My truck definitely has holes drilled thru both top and bottom of the frame on both sides. So we're two with one long bolt and one with two long bolts. It would definitely be a PITA to tighten the nut, because the crossmember gusset would be in the way.
Here's a couple of pics.

Yea its still do-able. Mines in but i never understood why they did it like that. **** i don’t understand why they did anything with the bed portion of these trucks. Very odd setup that always made me scratch my head saying “why??” But hey it was how they did it back then.
