Shouldn't take but a day to do a body lift. Bed should go by fairly quick. I've never done one myself, but I watched 2 friends do it in a one car garage in about 6 hours. Are you going to have any help?

your gonna need help. BL's suck, especially when you cant get the bolts loose, or the mounts turn with the bolts. Grrr...

I literally used all of my POWER, in the position i was in, it sucked, Tommy was tryin to hold the spacer with a vice grip, and he couldnt really hold it. It SUCKED..





We took this pic, to act like Gwennie(Christians Girl) was doing something.

When in reality, we were about to give up.. haha

the gas fill neck extending is a piece of cake...

what is not a piece of cake were the bolts in the cab, and moving stuff around in the engine bay to lift the cab...

Oh Man, don't remind me about those horrid bolts. Mark and I spent 2 hours trying to get the driver's side rear cab bolt off. Dang ring kept spinning despite me trying to hold it. Finall, Mark went to get more beer, and I tried rigging up something to hold the ring. One breaker bar, one wrench, and one clamp later, I had it off. Wasn't pretty, but I got the bolt out.
It wouldn't be so hard if the things weren't painted and rusty.

the bl lift will take a good full day and the bolts that hold the cab and bed on need to be heated with a torch from the bottom in order to get them out easily, other wise not even an impact wrench will get them out, I know the bottom is rubber but trust me, they wont melt, just heat them for about 10 -15 seconds, then turn them right out witha wrench.
