I almost bought a Bradford bed myself. But I went with an Aluma for about $1000.00 more. Even if I had gone with the Bradford I would have run some flatbar back to the frame to secure the hitch. When I mounted my Aluma flatbed to my truck I built a sub frame and used all available holes in the frame. Same with the hitch I built. You might want to consider bolting some 4-inch C-channel to the truck frame running vertically, and then weld a piece of box tube, (horizontally) to the C-channel. Then run 3-pieces of flatbar from the receiver to the box tube. 2 at a 45°, and one straight.
2007 3500, C&C, 4X4 Quad cab SLT, with 6.7L Cummins / 6-speed Aisin, 4:10 gears, and 9 1/2-foot Aluma flatbed. Black Maxx, 5-inch SS exhaust, EGR cooler delete kit, S&B air intake, So far very impressed!
