flatbed Pocket gooseneck ball

anyone have any pics of how their pocket gooseneck ball is set up under their flat bed.

I need to put one on my truck, just not sure if welding it to the current flat bed cross members will be sufficient or if i need to direct frame mount it under the flat bed. I plan on fabbing it all up myself.

i know that is the 100% best way to do it, but i want to know on flat beds IF they are mounted to the bed or frame. I think the bed is more than stout enough to handle it, and if it is how some come from the factory i would feel safe in doing mine that way as well.

after seeing how some factory made bolt in kits are made to add a gooseneck/5th wheel setup to a truck, i don't see why i could not bed mount it. heck, on a buddies 2500 dodge the gooseneck ball clamps on the frame, not a single bolt through the frame, just 4 clamps around it. i would think anything i would build would be at the very least as sturdy as a few frame clamps.
