Here is a parts brake down. Mine has two different cross-members in the middle of the bed. I hope you have all the pieces and this helps.

there are several good articles on the net for doing this. Mar-K has some good instructions as well as Horkey and Carpenter. I think even Mid-50 has some decent instructions. I used a combination of all of them

Matt, I thought the two center crossmembers were identical you just turned them opposite direction to take care of the curve in the frame rails and the fender bolts in that diagram are backwards.. the flat heads on the fender bolts are inserted in the bed wall with the flat on the inside of the bed and the nut under the fender.
