There are 4 cab bolts, 2 front clip bolts and 6 bed bolts.

DO NOT LOOSEN THEM IF YOU ARE GOING TO DRIVE IT! My truck did not move once I started my BL Thursday night.

Well no one will believe me but I broke the driver side one lose without heating it

I just used a breaker bar Ill have to remove the jump seats to get the back ones lose then out.


I got the driver front and back lose they turn is that good enough? Dont you have to have some one hold that rubber deal on the bottom to pull them out?

Here is what I did. I took a big pipe wrench and put it around the metal piece above the bushing to hold it. The reason you have to hole the metal piece in place it because the bolt is threaded into it also.

If the bolts already turn on the cab They wont be a problem removing once we do it will they?
