I have a 41 Chevy Ak with a camaro frame. Previous owner laid wood 2x4's and a sheet of plywood with a rubber mat on top of that for the bed. I want to remove all that. I ordered a bed kit but having a hard time configuring the cross sills. Does anyone have a diagram of the cross sills? Was told the rear cross sill goes in position #2 from rear of cab. Just looking for some guidance before the parts come in.

Kendall, Welcome to the Stovebolt forums. You should head over to the Welcome Centre and tell us a bit about yourself and your truck.

If you ordered from Mar-K your wood kit will come with an instruction sheet. That will tell you where the cross sills go. Also the metal strips give you some clues as the bolts go through the cross sills.

If you're smart enough to take it apart, you darn well better be smart enough to put it back together.
