I would like to put a 1988-1998 or 1999-2002 sport side (step side) box on my 59 apache. Does any body have any info on what kind of modifications are needed if any at all? Or a personal web site that has info. thank you

beds bolt right to the frame. you will probably just have to weld 4 horizontal tabs onto your 59 frame where ever the mounting holes for the 88-95 (or whatever) bed need to be put. drill holes and use "j" bolts to mount them. use highest grade you can find. your frame is flat and straight, the newer ones aint. so one end or the other may need spacers, unless you make a gusseted "body mount" at the right height. welcome to the land of custom fabrication. but at least it's in it's simplest form. and well worth the effort. i love those beds on our trucks
