Measured the hole distance between the plates and then drilled and tapped plus counterbored the top of the mount for brass tubing stand offs.

This should work just fine
I would love to see a pic with them installed and bikes in them as Iím having a hard time visualizing it. I have fork racks screwed to the bed floor of my current truck but looking for ideas for the next one
