installing truck bed

Took off my old rusty bed to paint my frame. Now putting on my new bed and was wondering if I should order own bolts for mounting or to improvise because it doesn't really matter. Anyone have some advice?

I've found its best to go with the OE bolts and clips, cause if you don't, you're going to have a hell of a time getting nuts on the bolts between the frame rail and fuel tank...
