Distance between top of bed rail and FW and Front of FW and back of cab during a 90 degree turn. Dealer should have checked and adjusted for all of this with the install but check it out anyways. You should have a minimum of 6" space between the bed rail of the truck and the FW. Also when turning or driving on uneven ground keep a close eye on the bedrails because that 6" of space shrinks very fast and you don't want a dent in your bedrail.

Always listen to 'em!

Make sure you don't have anyone offering to help when you do it. Sure fire way to forget to do something.

Distractions can easily turn into disasters.
