Dennis: Have a 55-1st PU - mine had a stud on the left side of the
x-member - no cross bar - though not stock think the 54 should fit a 53 -
maybe with some minor modifications.
I installed a late model pu crank up from the rear cable mount so will not
have to go under the truck if needed - stick jack handle in rear slotted
shaft through under bed face support.
Where in WA. are you?
