That's TBD. I need to poke around in there and see if the backing plate(s) is installed. It looks like the PO bondo'd over the mounting holes when painting the truck white. The outline of them is clearly visible through the paint. From what I was told, the carrier holes wouldn't be there for a truck that didn't come with it. Is that correct?

If so, I'll have to drill out the center of the bondo and then try to get the rest out with wire brushes. That sounds like endless fun.

BTW, even though I was already aware of the concern, I appreciate the feedback that would have saved me much grief if not!
