We started with the rear suspension. We removed the bed from the truck to gain better access to the rear suspension and the area of the frame that was going to be cut. We removed the rear bumper and disconnected the electrical wiring and gas fillers. The eight bolts were removed; two of which had to be ground off at the head because they were spinning in their holes. To make the job as easy as possible, we removed the tailgate and the wheels and tires and lowered the frame as low as it would go on the jack. That done, just two people were easily able to lift off the bed.
