Default Bodylift bed bolts loose

So I got a bodylift put on in January and my truck got rear ended last week and now it's all fixed and I picked it up yesterday. So today I noticed every corner I take I can see my bed move if I look at the body line detail that goes the length of the truck as reference. So I phone the offroad shop and they won't do it for me unless I pay. My trucks an 09 and has 6 bed bolts in the back but don't know how to take off the plastic stock bed liner to get at the bolts and how tight to tighten them too. Any help please

That bedliner is a drop in, you pull out the sides and back end and then pop it out.

take them completely out and put red thread locker on the bolts. don't need to do the entire bolt but about 1/4 of it should be sufficient and THEN tighten them down again. it will never go loose again

You should be able to get any loctite at any local auto parts store for no more than 6 bucks a pack.

If the bodyshop room the bed off they should have put loctite back on.

Ok so I got my canopy off now but my bed liner goes under my bed rail caps. How do I take it off? Seems glued or something? Maybe 3m tape?
