    My truck has a fiberglass lid is there a spreader that will not bolt to bed rail?

    Yes there is. I have a tonneau on my truck so it worked out perfectly. No holes to put in bed or bumper of truck, it is very low profile, has an 800# capacity, internal auger and chain agitator, and uses the smart hitch system to attach/detach in seconds. It is a Boss product. I have one and love it! PM me and I will tell you all about it.

    I know Buyers makes one that goes into your receiver hitch, I'm not sure sizes your anything, but they do make them.

    My Fisher Low Profile Model 1000 slides into the 2" receiver, holds (11) 50# bags of salt, the top of it is level with the top of the tailgate, it has a variable speed controller and this year I am adding the vibrator to help move wetter material.

    The Boss smart hitch holds (16) 50# bags of salt 800lbs and the top of it is also level with the top of the tailgate, it has a variable speed controller and vibrator with a bag spliter grate, Stil cutting the bags open with a blade is better, and if you have it loaded with salt it still will lower it self so you can reload more material.
