Why should I pay someone else to screw it up when I can screw it up myself for free?
Well, I don't know... I found a bunch of stuff behind there like some rail clamps for the bed, an odd looking acorn, and some half eaten candy, so I'm still holding out hope for some gold coins.

WIll try Google first, next time, and, thanks.
I found a Leatherman's tool and a Proto phillips head screw driver behind mine...do the desiccated french fries count as treasure?

There are two trucks. I am working on '97 now, 99 2wd B3000 is all sorted and for sale.
Rec'd Dentfix tool that takes out the buttons that hold plastic panels in. Can now see the other bolts. Tool works GREAT highly recommended. Dentfix 625. Has sharp edges that get under the button even if you maybe have to lift up the edge a little to start it then you can close them up around the shaft of the thing and it pulls easily straight out without breaking them. I don't know any other tool that does this.

I really like what this guy did for his rear section and will do something similar but I will store the jack under the hinged door instead of leaving that plastic cover in place which takes up room. It allows for some covered storage and a completely flat platform for the dogs.


View attachment 65562.
If you take off the jack storage cover it's a real ugly hole there. What you'd have to do is make the center and side sections. The sides cover the corner but they have extra you don't want if you are clearing it out in there. You see it there in the picture in the forefront, that piece doesn't have to be there. I'm not sure how you would fabricate it, but you'd want it to somehow cleanly replace those three pieces and match up to where they attach to the upper side parts. If you did that then you'd have a rectangular platform. I'm agreeing, yeah, lose the jack area, but, some fab work would have to be done otherwise it looks pretty bad. So - if one doesn't want to try to fab something then what he did there is probably about as good as you can do an have it look decent.
