2000 ford ranger body mount bolts

My 2000 ford ranger has what appears to be rivets in place of bolts for the body to frame mounts. If anyone know how to remove these please help. Thanks

That's not the bolt. That's the bottom tip of the lower insulator. The bolt threads from the cab down. Pull the carpet back from the footwell and you'll see a big rubber grommet in the floor pan. The head of the bolt is under there. Just as an FYI, ford used lock tite on the body bolts, so heat is gonna be your friend. (An impact helps too)

Thanks! I'll give an update on it once it's done. Putting a 3 inch body lift, 3 inch coil spring spacers and add a leaf along with 3 inch blocks in the rear

No problem.


Do you have any other lift in the front? Cause 5" in the rear and 3" in the rear is gonna leave you with a ton of rake.

Good deal. Just didn't want you to end up with 5" of rake. Haha.

No problem. I just replaced that insulator and body bolt when I did my floor pans.
Good luck with the body lift.
