    I have one too. I trimmed mine to fit. Clinton drilled the bed for it to slip into on the ends.

    The bar is in a tube. Opened the ends and cut off about inch on each end. Then did the same to the tube. Put it back together and siliconed the ends.

    Not sure but you could do what Clinton did and drill a couple of holes for it to fit in to.
  13. Your best bet would be to drill into the tailgate jamb. I believe in the HOW-TO section, he showed how he modded his, but I'm not entirely positive... Look up member Hooligan (AKA Clinton) and send him a message. He's be more than willing to explain it to you. Good luck man!
