start spraying all your cab bolts and bed bolts every couple days (top and bottom if you can) with PB Blaster. You'll find this extremely helpful the day you actually do the body lift so you aren't spinning bolts or trying to break them loose.

So true, but if its a fairly new truck a torch and an impact will be plenty. For mine it was torch and impact, but helps that its a southern truck.

Mapp>Propane and PB Blaster is your wonderful friend. Just take your time and follow the directions. It's that easy.
