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

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.
