Bed clamps

What kind of clamps are you guys using when clamping the stack to the bed? Is there a clamp made just for this? I used a torch to cut the hole in my bed so ive got a little, well a lot of extra wiggle room and my stack has lots of side to side and front to back play in it Looks like chit.

I was just thinking of getting a long U-bolt and drilling 2 holes in the bed and clamping it down like that. Im not really too concerned about looks as im going to be putting a tool box on eventually.

I don't have pics but I just used a 5" exhaust clamp on either side with the studs going through to the underside.

You could use a clamp like this and bolt it to the bed rail...http://secure.countywebsite.com/vict...roducts_id=125

Wally at FTE offers an awesome bed clamp setup. Square plate that lays flat on the bed with your adapters on each side. Just installed it today. Used some set screws to make sure though. Got everything from him for $175 minus stack. (flex plate, elbow, bed mount)
