Icon4 Body lift, box linerd bolts :(

Hey, I have a 2011 fx4 and my PA body lift arrived so when I get home after spring break
I wanted to install it, my big question is, when I bought the truck I had the dealership
Get the box linex'ed and they never took out or backed out the box bolts, just sprayed
Over top of them. How the hell do you get the bolts out and make it look clean ???
Thanks for suggestions guys

I'm not to conserned about the warranty.. Just want to make it still look like a brand new truck . I should be able to cut the edge of the bolt between the bolt and washer ? And pick out where the torn bit goes with something.. Then the PA body lift comes with new bolts right, So I won't have to re use the box lined ones ?

yeah it comes with bolts. I'd heat up the blade a little bit or let the truck sit in the sun for a while. makes it easier to cut through the liner. its tough

Either cut it yourself or have linex dealer do it so they cant void your warranty.

Okay question number two, if I get a roll pan will it be bolt on, and not show any Frame, or would it be a huge pain in the *** to mod to look amazing ?

I think they're bolt on. Only work you'll have to do is swap brackets from your bumper to the roll pan.

a few people fill the spaces so it looks like its part of the bed but thats not necessary
