Mounting Accessories to Prowler Bed

Does anyone have details on how I'm supposed to mount accessories to the bed of my Prowler?

I'm interested in adding an ice auger mount. Possibly a gun scabbard. Or bow mount.

But as I've been inspecting the bed rails, it's not exactly clear how I would mount them.

Has anyone else added any accessories to the bed?

I checked out the speed rail brackets. I'm not exactly sure if that's what I'm looking for or not. I'll have to see if I can find those somewhere to see them in person.

be sure you check it out closely , the plastic bed bottom won't take to much abuse before it cracks and breaks through ... might need to reinforce the bed real well before you mount anything

name is Gary or hey you if ya forget

2009 Prowler XTZ , couple things added here and there
'83 CJ7 / SBC + whole lot added here and there
'01 Dodge / Cummins / Dually, a ton of stuff added here and there

INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE NEWBIES ...
1. Bring in a good load of firewood for the pit
2. start the morning coffee , strong but not burnt / boiled down , IMPORTANT start it early as many of us old farts get up early !!
3. sit a spell and swap some lies with the best of us

That's what I'm concerned about. Do you think adding flat bar stock under the plastic is the best way to reinforce?

no , removing the plastic and replace with an aluminum [or steel] base box would be much better , the plastic won't take much ... I have beat through my base box with a Colorado Outfitters rack / containment cage on all four corners and need box replacement also.

here is what I have mounted in my box ..http://www.coloradoruggedracks.com
