If the nut has been welded, perhaps the bolt is meant to come out from the other side.

I've never taken my bed off, so I'm just throwing ideas out there.

Yeah lol the thing is it can only come out from below
*EDIT*
I just cut the bolt off just above the welding

Bumping this thread up, I need to get this done this weekend and lifting with a very large engine hoist looks to be my answer.


I just want tp replace the paint between bed/cab because it's at primer sealer now, too many dirt roads


Bump it up, excellent write up!!

Hello all.
My old '95 has a camper shell that's been on it since I bought it in 2000.
It appears to be glued on.
I tried a floor jack in the bed with a board to spread the force, but it still seems like the shell is going to crack before coming off.
It no longer has a hatch or screens in the windows, but I still would like to get it off in one piece.
Any suggestions?
Thanks.

Probably the rubber seal between the to] and the bed had sealant on it.

Make sure there are no bolts holding it on.

Try a pry bar and start at the corners.

On my '88 Mazda truck, I can unbolt and tilt up the truck bed for access to the fuel tank.



Some disconnect everything and pull the bed rearwards for access.

On my 89 LB d21, it wasnt too bad to lift up one end by myself(with a AL comercial cap)... I ended used my hilift at the wheel well (with rags to protect) to lift and hold. It went pretty smooth to change out my fuel pump assembly...

I havent fully looked through the thread, but now I remeber to mention it... I had 2 bolts near the rear that had nylon lock nuts at they both broke off. Im in the process of getting them replaced, but they looked factory and didnt want to move at all...
Just a heads up for all that might need to get this done with the long beds.

I'm going to be removing my bed soon to clean up/coat the frame and underside of the bed itself since it is virtually rust free.

Any tips on what to set the UPSIDE DOWN bed on while prep and coat in my garage?
