I need to install my reese bed rails w/ brackets.
The install instructions are poor.

Anyone have a link or copy of some instructions that can help me do a clean install.

I need these rails install ASAP.

Thank you in advance! T:popcorn:

Great!
I tried placed here in Miami,FL
but they want $300+-600 for the install alone. And I need to drop off the truck.
No way, I will do it myself and right.
I wish I could get it done for say 150 max.
I found instructions from reese but the same that I got in the box.

Any tips or tricks for the 99 3500 CTD QC? Thks T

I have done them on a 92,93,98.5, and a 99. To be honest I just followed the reese instructions. Other than having a good sharp drill bit, and double check the measurements I don't think there really is any tricks.

Rails are easy to install. Use the instructions from the Reese website. Measure and set the rear rail, set in the A frame and front rail, get the rail holes in. Check the front rail to clear the bed brace, you may have to go 1/2 inch forward. Locate the frame braackets off the rail bolts and get set to drill the frame. Hint: go buy a new bit for the large holes. Bolt everything up and torque the bolts. Done in about 3 hours.
