You bet... I'll be sure to write up a good description HOW-TO on removing the bed. Which can not only apply to F150's but SD's as well in a general sense. There is no one on the net that has a full pictorial description on how to remove a pickup bed. Which in this day-in-age, it sure is sad.
But I'm looking forward to doing it.
As some have asked, is it an engine hoist I am using?
Actually NO! It is a standard winch I am using attached to my garage. It is NOT an engine hoist by any means... even if I did use an engine hoist, it wouldn't work too good being it an 8' bed. An engine hoist that is full size would work great on 4' and 6' beds, but not an 8' bed.
What I am going to do is remove all the bolts and wiring harnesses, and attach chains to each of the four tie down points in the bed, and basically winch it up in the air and have my assistants stabilize it if necessary.
I doubt I will have any problems.
What will be more cool is to drive my truck without a bed.
