Pulled my bed off too, how the hell else are you supposed to put those damn fuel filler extentions in cant even get a handle on them from underneath and the extentions they give you are about 1000x to big to shove in the hoses.. much easier to go from the top and handle everything, probably a much easier way to all this stuff that I'm not seeing, oh well.

I got 1 in from underneath but the smaller one we could just not get on even with shaving the insides with a utility knife. We had to find some smaller piping in his garage and use that instead but it was a lot thinner then the hose itself, we just shoved it in there and it seemed to get tighter the farther it went down, then we clamped it down real good, the piece they give you in the kit is ridiculously to big.

Same problem we had. It was the same size as the vent tube.

Lucky, we both work at pepboys, so I ran there and grabbed some new line.

exactly it was BS, we found some thinner line, so we put it in and it went down but there was still a little gap, but the clamp fixed that.

to end all .02/arguments....

this was our first BL. we started this project armed with our automotive knowledge, understanding of the concept of what to accomplish, and information we gathered from this site. we dont share the same wisdom that jrpro130 and redneckstone have.

the things we removed had meaning. we were not tool happy and jus removed anything and everything that had a nut/bolt/screw holding it down.

the front seats and console were removed so we could peal the carpet back. made working in the cab easier.

as for the rear seats.... the cab bolts were under the seat bracket. so removal was a must.

the headlights/corners were removed because in hozII's BL thread i took notce that he removed them as well. figured maybe he knew something we didnt. no harm with being safe rather than sorry.

the bed was removed to make the installation of the bumper brackets and filler neck extensions easier. as it was, the extensions put up a good fight. we ended up replacing the vent hose with a new, longer piece. couldnt imagine the amount of trouble to get all that done with the bed still on.

the fact is we had a day to complete and we got it done. we didnt have time for delays considering i need my truck done cause i had work the following day. so with that said, we took the little extra time, removed anything that may slow us down, and made sure the project went as smooth as possible.
