05ram4x4 is on a distinguished road

I know this i an older thread But I had to do this. I figured I'd post so it's on here. I removed my tailgate. (why not? It's easy enough.) And my rear bumper. I removed 6 bolts holding the bed to the frame. Removed the screws holding the filler neck to the bed. And removed the ground strap. (on the front passenger side of the bed connected to the cab.) Me and 2 or 3 other guys slid the bed back just enough and put a couple blocks of wood under the bed on the frame to keep the bed off of the rotors. If you do it, you'll see what I mean. The just do the reverse to put it back together. Not too difficult. Easier than dropping the tank In my opinion. Especially of it's full. I took some pictures during the whole thing.

I broke ONLY 1 bolt holding the bumper on. Easy enough to replace. Other than that. Zero damage to anything.
