If you have a close by 4x4 shop they sell rolls of block.....you can get a big roll for like 20$ and cut it to the sizes you want...and just get bolts....dont do the hockey pucks.....You should have 4 bolts going through your bed like others have said, and like 6 in your cab i think....

my PA kit came with optional weld in crush blocks. I think you only need them if you plan on hauling dirt or gravel in the bed or something like that. Their purpose is to distribute the weight even so the bottom of the bed doesn't bed in the middle inbetween where the lift blocks are.

I never put mine in and I would not worry about it unless you are planning on hauling heavy loads in the bed all the time. Even the once a year load of dirt or gravel I don't think would hurt anything. I am planning on getting a trailer for my heavy loads of stuff like that.
