In doing a general search, I came up with the following TSB's that I'd like to take a look at:


01-08-66-014A


01-08-66-005B


The summary description that I got from the NHTSA website is: "Technical information regarding pickup box sheet metal fracture/dmanage with aftermarket accessories installed. "


I'm going to have a 5th wheel hitch installed in the next month or so and I'm concerned that these may apply to my truck/hitch. Can anyone help?


Thanks!
