Truck Bed Brackets May Fail

If the brackets fail, the truck bed may shift or become detached from the sub frame, increasing the risk of a crash.

Components EQUIPMENT

Potential Number of Units Affected 449



Contract Manufacturer, LLC. (Contract Manufacturer) is recalling certain CM truck beds, models 171-ALSK, 171G-ALGS, 173-ALRD and 173G-ALGF. The attachment brackets that connect the aluminum truck bed to its steel sub frame are not the correct thickness, which may cause the brackets to crack.



Contract Manufacturer will notify the purchasers, and their dealers will install supplemental ¼” brackets to both the chassis of the

bed and the deck of the bed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 15, 2019. Owners may contact Contract

Manufacturer at 1-580-795-5536.



Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to
