looking for a ground

Hey yall I'm needing a ground in the bed and im wondering if the bolts for the bed rails are grounded? For clarification purposes for those that get pissed about folks that don't search all I have around me is my phone its a pain. Any help would be appreciated. Oh and I cant find the volt meter or I could check.

They should be-Altho how clean the metal to metal contact is I do not know. If you can get to the frame you might want to use that....Easier to sand down and clean up before bolting it together.

I got the lights hooked up in the bed they worked for a minute till i shut the tailgate and rattled the bed. I tested the bolts again no ground so its not a reliable grounding point it confuses the crap out of me. I unhooked everything and put it away ill fool with it again when it warms up. I live in Georgia so that can be like next week ha
