Post How to put a 72 GMC long bed back on

Ok, A guy I know was looking for instructions, and complete list of everything he needs to put the bed back on his GMC. I told him to just look underneath, see how many holes there are, measure the bolt size, and go down to the hardward store and buy them. then just set on the bed, and bolt it on.But he wants the whole list. Where can he either get the list and detailed instructions on how to do it, or, can anyone describe how to do it? Thanks, from him. Garrett

Factory service manual? This job is really a no-brainer, they can only go on one way. Does he have bed bushings? You can get a kit with all the stuff you need to do it. He can also go to a dealer and possibly get the parts, gonna be expensive though. Depending on what year the truck is there are several companies that still manufacture parts. Chevy Duty and Brothers are good starting points. If you do a search you will find they have an internet site, you can order a free catalog from either.
