section of the CBC. The individual sections are secured to the carrier mounting angles using carriage
bolts, pan head screws, flat washers, lock washers, and nuts supplied with the mounting plate installation
Installing the front mounting plate section. Before installing the front and rear mounting plate sections,
be sure that the supporting blocks are located under the side walls of the CBC and are approximately 24
inches from the corners. This will provide adequate room to install the front and rear sections.

mounting angle (3) of the CBC so that the face of the mounting plate section with the applied weather
stripping faces DOWN and toward the vehicle bed.

(5) on the carrier mounting angles (3).
Have a second person hold the mounting plate section (1) securely in position and install a total of eight

surface of the carrier mounting angle, followed by a 5/16 inch lockwasher (8) and 5/16 UNC hex nut (9).
Repeat for all remaining screws.
