Hello my question is on 1954 chevy 3100 there 3 cross rails in the bed that hold the wood boards. Are they all the same or do they have any order of placement or is there a front or back I understand open to ground trying to get holes in metal strips that hold bed boards to line up with bed crossmember's holes THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!!!!

The front and rear cross sills are different from the center ones. On the earlier (47-53) beds, the front sill bolts to the front bed panel and the rear sill bolts to the bedsides at the rear. I believe the '54s are similar.
