Bed removal

I've heard there are 6 Torx bolts holding the bed on. To remove the bed, are the bolts unbolted from the top, or do I crawl under and unboly from the bottom?

Go out, remove your bed liner, and tell me what you see. I have a feeling that you will figure it out very quickly!



p.s. - you can get to them from in the bed, no need to crawl under the truck man

3 small screws on the gas cap, disconnect the light-wiring harness under the tailgate and then take out the 6 T-55 bolts in the bed. Taking off the tailgate first helps with weight. The bed is **** heavy when lifting it if you don't.
