How hard is it to pull the body off. I have vacation coming up soon and I'm thinking of taking the body off to bedline the frame.

Wiring will need to be undone in some parts, steering needs to be unhooked. shifters, parking break, break lines unhooked. Could turn into a big job but isn't impossible. Biggest issue would be as already mentioned the body bolts breaking. Would be a good time to go ahead and do body bushings if yours look rough.

Well...I have broken almost all of my body mount bolts trying to pull the tub off a bad frame. For those of you that have run into this issue, what is the easiest way to correct the problem? I know I will have to cut into the body. But, are there any suggestions to make this easier?

I would use an angle grinder with a thin cut off wheel and cut a 2 inch square but leave one of the sides uncut and peel it back then pull those plates out and replace them

There are 2 mounts by the driver and passenger seat where the floor is on an angle so I'm not sure if a hole saw would work for those but it might work for others how many bolts did you break
