Bed alignment after installing under bed hitch.

Anyone have instructions on bed alignment? I just put a factory hitch on my truck and wanted to make sure it is getting aligned properly.

Sweet, how hard was it to install it? I'm kicking myself for not ordering my truck with it!

Not bad at all. Air ratchet, 18mm socket, 60 torx bit, 3/8 torque wrench and 1/2" torque wrench is what you will need. Use tape on bumper and forward bed rail and cab to make alignment marks to put bed right where it originally was. I did air bags and stripper pole delete at same time so almost 2 days in the project.

I left out the 50 torx bit also for bed bolts.

Thanks! Doesn't sound that bad, what did the factory hitch run you?
