INSTALLING TIEDOWN POST ASSEMBLIES
In order to mount the tiedown post assemblies to the mounting plate
assembly, the supporting blocks used to raise the CBC/mounting plate
combination must be selected to raise the CBC at least 8-1/2 inches in
order to allow adequate clearance for the installation of the tiedown post
Four tiedown post assemblies (1) are installed at the four corners of the mounting plate assembly (2).
These tiedown post assemblies will later be lowered into holes (3) on the vehicle bed (4) and help to
secure the CBC and Mounting Plate combination to the vehicle bed.
To install the rear tiedown post assemblies, locate the tiedown post mounting holes (5) located at the

installing the rear tiedown post assemblies.
Position one tiedown post spacer plate (6) under one corner of the mounting plate and align the mounting
holes (7) in the spacer plate with the forward mounting holes (5) in the mounting plate.
Position one tiedown post assembly (1) in position under and against the spacer plate (6) positioned
above. Align all mounting holes.
Install two 5/16 inch (.328 inch ID x 1.375 inch OD x .063 inch thick) flat washers (8), followed by 5/16
