lift going in this weekend (weather pending)

okay so its finally time. i have Saturday and Sunday off, so im heading to north jersey to a buddys house to put my lift in. I am not mechanically inclined, but i know how to turn a wrench lol. i have a question though, where are the body bolts located and how many are there? my friend told me to start spraying them with pb blaster, and the bolts i was able to locate, i did spray everyday, the ones i found were the very front cab bolts, and the very back bed bolts, so thats only 4. in between them i know there are more lol, but it is raining today and i dont really wanna crawl around the ground with no direction. anyway if i could get an answer on that, thanks, and wish me luck with this weekend!

alright so the very front of the truck there are 2 for your core support. It threads up, like going to the sky so make sure you spray the threads and not the bolt head. Next set should be basically right in front of the doors. Then a couple feet back from that at the rear of the cab is the next set. The bed bolts can be a little tricky. The easiest thing to do for those is look in your bed and get an idea of where the bolts are. Get under the truck and look for the other end of the bolts. They will be on the inner side of the frame rail.
