Are there any rubber bumpers between any of the bolts?

I'm going to pull my bed this summer to get paint on.

Hey fellas,

Anyone have a good remedy to break the rusted bolts? WD, PB, some muscle? I have a propane torch, too.

I am going to clean my frame and work on the rear side of things. Figured it may be easier to just take off the bed. I will possibly replace it with a flat bed.

Get under there and spray them with PB blaster every day for a week before you actually plan to remove them. Make sure you get where the threads go through and not just the head of the fastener(if you can). There's also kroil but it's pretty spendy.

I had Kroil on hand when I did this. PB Blaster will work too. Give it a good shot and give it a day or so to work it's way in. I bought a used impact driver and an inexpensive metric deep socket set from Harbor Freight. It makes life easier getting old frozen nuts off the bolts.

I have mastered the art of removing a bed. Totaly removed in under 30 minutes. Using a cordless impact of course.
