Anyone have one of these Salt Spreader Swing Gates?

    If you have any dealers in your area, they probably have some demo's set up to show you how these install.

    Some use the tailgate hardware, while others require you to drill your bumper, bed and/or body to attach the hardware. I have seen one slick setup that had hardware in the fender rails and then clamp on for the rest, but still required a bumper assembly attachment.

    Call around to your dealers. Ours in this area had a couple of pickup beds set up with the spreader as comparison how to hook them up.

    I have one, well, one that appears to be the same as the picture. Mine came from Lesco. I don't have it installed right now so I can't show you any pics.

    The top plates will anchor into your bed rail hole, and then use a set screw (bolt) to tighten from the underside of the rail.
    The bottom plates will bolt through the bumper (you will need to drill at least three holes per plate).
    The side poles (pivot arms) will mount from the bottom plate to the top plate.

    If you still want some photos, I'll send some once I have mine on again, which might be a couple of weeks.
