Default How many bolts are holding on your bed?

A friend with a 2004 B4000 has 6 in the bed.

I got curious because while we were looking at his instructions for the summit racing 3" body lift he just purchased it said to remove the 6 bed bolts (8 for long box)... my bed is not extended but has 10 bolts mounting the bed.

Just wondering if this is all 2011's and does anyone have a lift kit with the extra bolts/blocks for the 5 bolt bed?

Eventually I'll get the torch out and burn it off when they all get replaced. I don't haul a whole lot so 5 will work for a while.

Sounds like the went to 10 bolts in 2009... anyone have an answer on the body lift for a 10 bolt? The summit racing kit has 8 because it works for the long box. I figure I can take his extra 2 and the 8 it would include to make the 10 I'd need.

While you're on the subject;
Do you remove the fuel take to access the R/H cab end bolt?

if so, what to watch for when removing the tank.
It's a 92 7' box

Thanks Ian
