    I got mine from Bayway in Houston as well! I would have been sunk without these instructions. Had to make a late night dash to Lowe's before it closed to get the hardware for the nutsert crushing. Almost bought a torque wrench, but I'd rather spend that $150 on more gear for my Gladiator!

    I haven't been interested in having the rail system until I saw this spare mount! I think this would look awesome!! Excellent write-up, it will come in handy if I decide to go this route with the spare.

    I don't know how I could have secured our new fridge as well today without the cargo rails system.

    Can somebody tell me the measurements of one of the rails, not the length, but the width and height of the piece, somewhere around 1.5"x1.5" i assume.

    Thanks.

    Adding some lube to the insert tool 'bolt-nut-device' will help reduce friction while compressing the head.
