Yup T-55. Had to buy one to get mine off. Get it in a 1/2" drive, and use a breaker bar to make the job easier. I had to do it with a 3/8" drive ratchet, and it wasn't easy.

Don't heat the bed bolts, unnecessary, and kinda dangerous. They'll come out with a bit of persuasion, and some penetrating oil. Or in my case, just persuasion, since rust wasn't an issue yet.

^haha, I'm super scared, yes, I'll admit that putting a torch THAT close is a bit much for me. haha.

But seriously your not going to strip a T55, just get that with a half inch socket drive and a long ass metal tube over the handle and ppppuuuusssshhhhh!

While on the subject.

Is it necessary to remove the fuel tank to get to the bed bolt drivers side " the cab end, if so, what to watch for
92, (7`bed) 6 bolts
Thanks Ian

definetly heat them up and spray pb blaster on them before u even get to the job..And like somebody else said the drivers side closest to the cab is right in the frame rail next to the gas tank..make sure u go slow and dont break it..trust me cause when i did my body lift i broke it and had to pull the whole bed off to get that clip that the torq or hex bolt goes into off the frame..shitty job

I just pulled my bed off a 94 ranger with 6 bolts with a 3/8" drive ratchet. The key was to break the bolts I could, then head out to my buddy's place who has the air tools to break the other two that wouldnt budge for me. No worries!
