    Can you take a picture of how the insert bolts to the bed in the front, mine didn't come with factory mounts and I want to see what they look like stock. I see the rear just sits over the rear angle iron

    Here are a few pics of how my insert is mounted. The bolts just run down through the bed.

    Thank you, that is pretty much what I have made for mine. I have my leaf vac mounted the same way, but with a flexible hose that goes to the truck, the same hose for a vac system on a scag turf tiger.

    The hose extends about a foot into the bed so it doesn't pop out when turning. Its held up by a bungie cord that is wrapped around the top board which is crimped to itself. Basically a big circle that the pipe sits in.

    No problem. It came with 4 mounts but I had 2 made and added those to the very back. I was getting some bounce and that eliminated it. I was going to try a flex pipe but the solid PVC has been good so far
