Here is the dam body bolt that I cant get off. The dam bottom rubber mount thing spins when you turn the bolt, and i cant find something that is big enough to stop it, any ideas

For the last bolt get a big pair of channel locks and a strong friend. Heat that puppy up and use a cheater-bar with your breakerbar and it should come off.

yeah, we tried some channel locks.. didnt seem to hold it.. the that piece of metal with the two notches in it is attached to the rubber part, and they both move.. just bottom not the top piece..about the only thing we can figure out is a very big pair of vice grips..

Oh and it looks like ill be pretty much finishing this by myself with the occational help from a bystander tomorrow, everyone has to work.. lol..

if your going to cut the valence, you dont have to take off the tow hooks. and for those front cab bolts, i got pissed and welded a steel bar to it, then with a breaker bar it came off. lol

haha. thats funny. yeah, we prob. could have gotten the whole cab done today if we could have gotten the cab bolts done. we have all of them done except the one under the drivers side seat. I would have been able to get it if we had big enough vise grips to hold the washer thinger from moving with the bolt as we were trying to loosin it.
