the title says bed to the frame but in your post you said bed to frame rail, are you talking about the ones on the floor holding the bed down or the scews holding the bed rails on?

Hopefully this is what the OP wants as well but what's the size of the bolt for the bed tithe frame? The star shaped one. I put my tire carrier on and accidentally stripped one..

It's just called the Torx T55 star. The socket is welded to it. Cause it's such a big size you can't twist it like a regular Allen. I'll post a pic right now

Sorry I got my words mixed up. I'm talking about the bolts that actually hold the ded to the frame of the truck. I've been getting a kind of thuding sound when I go over speed bumps. I checked it out and I can lift the front passenger corner of the bed so I checked underneath and the bolt is missing to attach the bed to the frame.

Here's the spot I'm talking about.
The first- I'm pointing the bracket where the bed is supposed to be bolted to.
2nd- where the bolt is supposed to be.
3rd- a shot of how the bed can be lifted from the bracket since the bolt is non existent.

Hope the pictures help

When I took off my bodylift I found that the head of the bolt you are looking at is 3/4, I think thats about 17< but I couldn't matchup the threads with any bolts I could find so what I did was retap the thread and use regular bolts 3/4 head, 7/16's shaft and coarse thread. Don't hold me to that 7/16's, my memory is fading, but that is the solution I would recommend. I'm sure the stock bolts are like 20 bucs at the $tealership.
