you swap beds!

Thanks to those who gave the tips...they said "15 minutes to ahve the bed off! no sweat!" of course, I knew it would take more like an hour, because if it's never been off before, the bolts will be rusty! among other complications.

total swap for the beds took me about 4 hours doing it all by myself, the other guy didn't have much help to provide, and honestly, I wasp robably faster at it by myself than if he had tried to help.

we did just pick it up and move it, wasn't too bad, but he was a short little guy with no upper body strength, so we had to take the wheels off the trucks, and almost set them down on the ground so the bed was low enough for him to pick it up.

Now I got some more work to do! --reinstall fuel cell, bed mounted battery, roll pan, flares, body kit, and finally, the already painted fiberglass bed cover thats been in my basement since about December!
