Just seeing if anybody has pics of their install. Im just trying to find the best way to go about it. Should i pull back the bed to get better access to the front of the bedsides to drill out the spot welds? Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Yes, you are going to need to take the bed off of the truck to get to the spot welds.

you dont need to remove the bed, all you need is a sawzall.
Ahhhhh....holy crap!!! I think if I was going to do this I might cut up a spare bed from a wrecker and have the original as a spare. :) I just couldn't do it to my truck.:fever:

Has anyone else noticed the titantalk.com scratched into the paint above the cut? Thought that was pretty nice of him to advertise like that... =) Lets see some finished pics!

Sorry guys. But thats how you mount bedsides on a truck unless you decide to remove the bed and build a bed cage to mount from. Basically what your doing is "skinning" the bed. Ive done this many times if anyone needs any help or pointers pm me.

Do the fiberglass bed side fenders come with anything to keep debris from accumulating in the top of the wheel well/box area??

Holy Sh..!!

Found this and HAD to reply. Dude, you've got some seriously large balls!! I mean, I torched off the front of my frame, but there's no way I could slice up my bedsides with a sawzall!!!

I used a spotweld drill to get a cleaner "peel", telling myself the whole time that I could always put the skins back on (ok...so I lied to myself). I'd be curious to know who's glass you bought, since my Glassworks bedsides would never fit unless the whole thing was removed. Here's a shot of mine after they were off, which we sold on eBay.

Oh...original question, yes you need to pull the bed back to get at the welds. My opinion is the extra time makes for a very clean install. Post some pics when you get it done!!!

Man...all I can say is you guys have more guts then me too hake up a new truck like that. I'd go find an old jeep or something too fix up too go bonnie bashing in or something. To each his own, I guess I'm too much of a coward or just too old. Good luck though.
