    So i failed at installing the bed stiffeners. The bolts on the bottom of the bed are too seized to remove, I snapped the tip off my T40 bit o_O Will probably just cut the bolts out, my question is, is there a toyota part I should order or can i replace them with normal hardware?

    Chuck box on the other hand is going fairly well!

    Baby steps. Takes a bit more metal fabrication skills than I'll own up to. Mainly being able to completely seal it from the weather. I have been trying to find one off a crappy condition topper to modify to what i need and put in mine.

    And i just wanted to get this on so then the ideas can start rolling about what i want to add to it.

    It needed to be a quick turnaround to have the truck working again. Can't be without a window for a week.

    Did you clean any exposed threads under the bed?
    You may be trying to force a bunch of dirt and rust back through the threads if not.

    Not sure what you mean by "Cut out" but my preferred method is Drilling out and knocking in an extractor (Not sure of exact name, but see below- never saw bottom one before) bit and attach visescrips to remove or cut a flat head into top and screw driver it out.

    I meant cut out by taking an angle grinder to the top of the bolt and just making it go away, then hammering a punch in there to pop the bolt out.

    I might just weld a bar onto the top of the bolt and use that to pop it loose. It's really rusted/seized. I'll try this extractor

    Since you mention really Rusted/ Seized the extractor might not be best choice unless you PB Blaster the heck out of it for a bit.

    Isn't that a T55 not 40? I might give it a try if you are on the south end of town. My bed bolts are seized so I'm buying a t55 impact 1/2" socket

    Are you talking about the bed bolt or the bolt that holds the D-ring in the back? The bed bolt is T55 and usually silver. The D-Ring bolt has a short shoulder that allows the D-ring to spin freely. I do have an extra set of the D-ring mounting hardware (Toyota part #PT278-35054) that you can have.

    I'm also always paranoid about breaking the extractor off in the bolt and then really being fucked.

    I have never seen that before, usually the soft metal of screw gives and Extractor pops out.

    Both are very seized, the T40 holding the D-ring is the one i snapped the tip off.
    The T55 wouldnt budge either.

    I'll gladly take you up on this and throw you some whiskey for you troubles :hattip:

    Yeah, I've personally had good luck with them as well, I've just heard stories where guys snapped them and then been really screwed because the extractor metal is so hard. So now I just stop and spray more pb blaster if it feels like it's really not budging.

    Like others have said, soak the bolts with PB Blaster, let them sit for a day, and soak them again. For better results, try to soak the threads under the bed.

    I'll be in Longmont this weekend, but I can go as far as Thornton to meet you for the replacement hardware if you need it. Just send me a PM if you haven't been able to get that bolt off by Saturday

    I've had success using this stuff on rusted items and the nice thing is you don't have to be careful with it :thumbsup:

    I unfortunately soaked the bolts(and threads) as suggested to no avail.
    I'm leaving at lunch today and heading to Crested Butte for the weekend - will be back Sunday evening. If you're not opposed to it, I can drive out your way after work one day next week and grab that hardware from you
