Damn it man ill have to do that next time. Between the bed cover, liner and bed mat i felt it was too much of a pain to remove all that just to lift the bed. also with that i can cut the bed and no one will ever see it. good thinking!
I had a fuel hose rupture in the tank above the Y at a shitty place and time for it to happen. Was just a major pain to remove the bed or drop the tank at the time because of where i was. I decided while i had my bed off doin some rear suspension stuff id make that access hole just incase for future use. Like u said bed cover and mat, no one will see it so no big deal. Plus if i need in there for any reason now its no sweat. Im suprised no one had done this well before now.Damn it man ill have to do that next time.

But with the help of Stan, and a bunch of pictures and measurements we decided to shim the bridge. and thankfully it worked, because I was losing my fucking mind! 😂Your truck have trick flow heads? If so, did they use the 8mm studs?
