    hey guys has anyone fabricated or can suggest how to mount the 2000 series profile spreader on my truck. I have the swingaway mount now and dont want to drill into my new truck. The under bed mount will work but that runs about 600 bucks for all the stuff. Any other suggestions would help.

    What about adding 2 receiver tubes to the outside ends of your trailer hitch and then using all 3 tubes to build a bracket off of to hold the spreader?

    I have seen a speedcaster spreader that mounts into the trailer receiver and has two stabalizers leaning on the rear bumper. This looks to be a simple and effective set up that is secure without holes.

    I just bought a speedcaster and plan on mounting it the same way.........I will post pics soon of the install
