    I am looking into putting a E-Z Dumper insert in my 2006 Chevy 2500. It's coming out of a Ford & it was monted to bed/frame using the bed bolts. My Chevy bed mounts from the bottom, so there are no bolts exposed in the bed.:hammerhead: Anyone have any experience installing one of these? Am I going to have to make a bunch of alterations??? :cry:

    I had a good fabrication shop install my dump insert. They fabbed up 4 large angle brackets, bolted those to the frame of the truck and ran 8 big bolts through the bed to bolt to the insert frame. $300 for labor and materials including wiring, it was money well spent.
