^I'm with him. I thought I understood it, but then you guys started talking in the other thread about the tires coming off the ground which couldn't happen the way I envisioned it. LOL.

Here is another way to remove the bushing. I am needing to do my and I did a search on how to remove the cab mounts and this popped up. Just another idea.

I love it Darin, love it. The extended cab is a great combo for a dually. Mine just seems to long at times but we love the back seat.

Gabe and Phil, I'm not any good at explaining any thing but I'll try again. The link in this thread I posted earlier has it in it. The long bolt you take out of the bushing (body mount) from the top is used to pull the bottom section out of the bottom part of the body mount. Roll the floor jack under the frame by the body mount. Lope a chain under the jack, between the front and back wheels. Adjust the chain length so you can put the long bolt thru the chain links in two different spots to make a loop with the bolt at the top. Thread the bolt into the threads on the bottom of the body mount. OK, as you jack up on the frame the size of the loop of the chain stays the same size and does not move up with the truck. Jacking up the truck pulls on the chain tightening it up and pulling down on the body mount with the bolt thru the links of the chain. Think of your self with your feet frozen in cement and your arms extended up above your body holding onto that bolt. You're hanging onto the bolt with both hands refusing to let go. As the force above you is pulling up, it (the force) finally lets go and your left with the bolt and lower part of the body mount in your hands. The top part of the body mount stays inside the cab. The directions say to grind the flare off so when you put them back together again they go together without locking. LOL Still clear as mud? Don't laugh to hard, when I first read it I had no idea of what he (in the link) was talking about.

I tried that method Kevin without any luck. I screwed on the piece of muffer pipe until I caved it in, LOL The method I'm attempting to explain, like Darin did, raised the whole truck up until my wheels were almost off the ground and finally BANG, they came apart.

Ok. I think I got it. I just didn't image that the jack would have to raise the frame up enough to lift a wheel off the ground.

I know, its unbelievable how tight they are in there! Unless your truck is fairly new, IMHO, the exhaust pipe puller idea is a joke.

Thanks Glenn, i belive i get it now too. The part i was having trouble understanding was how you hook the chain to the mount. You take the bolt out of the top and thread it up through from the bottom through the chain. And that pulls the bottom section of the mount down? Sorry to be difficult. And the hijack.

Gabe, pulling down with the bolt is supposed to seperate the sleeve when you jack on the frame and pull the bottom half out. All it did with mine is pull the top big rubber piece down to almost flat and lift the pickup off the floor!

The hard part is done. Still have to shim and tighten body mounts and bed, wiring the trailer plugs, finish mounting the exhaust, bumper, hitch, toolbox, etc. Really not too much though. I'm doing some wiring changes so that will take some time.

Thanks again guys. I really like it too. It looks so much different than before. Kinda "beastlike" if you will.

The exhaust puller pulled my RUSTY as hell 13year old NJ/PA mounts right apart. It is a puller and works just like any other one

Thanks Mike!

Glenn, I wasn't really thinking of a name, but that could kinda work. My mom named my 76 "the beast" quite a few years ago. I guess another beast in the family would be ok. I don't know about taking the name away from my 76, although this is more of a beast than that is, but something along those lines would probably work. I never really have given this truck a name.

Well, it may just have to take the name over then. I like it and it kind of fits. I'll just "modify" the 76's name to "the 'ol beast".
