7. Mounting to truck bed
Place the ladder rack assemblies on the truck in the desired positions.
Adjust the lip mount so that it rests on the lip of the truck bed. Make sure the legs are straight up and down. For best results, use a level to
check plumb.
Using the lip mount and bed mount as templates, mark holes to be drilled.
Check for access underneath marked holes for clearance needed to install washers and nuts. Adjust position if needed. If access is not
available, use the 3/8” x 1” lag bolts. If using the lag bolts, install by drilling ¼” diameter holes.
