You will have to drop the fuel tank(best if as close to empty as possible), the emergency brake bracket, and the tail light harness has to be disconnected. There were 8 bolts/studs on the long wheel base I did not sure if the same for a short wheel base. I think that is everything but take your time and double check before you pick the bed off. The bolt/ stud nuts can be very rusted so you will want to get some PB up into them as much as possible, I found it easier to use a deep well socket and breaker bar to break them loose then put a rachet on them, if you don't have access to an impact gun. When you do go to lift it get it loose and then check to be sure you have everything disconnected. Hope this helps.

I recommend PB blaster or other spray penetrant. Works infinitely better than WD-40 for stuck bolts. :thumbsup:

Jeep on!

SB is the same. Also don't forget to disconnect the fill hoses from the gas tank, hose clamps (2). The wiring to the lights out back run along the driver size frame rail and and is connected to the bed by plastic loom fastners, found out the hard way.
