TIP: Bed angle replacement. Original equipment bed angles were spot welded in place. Clean up area around angles. Center punch all spot welds on angle to box. Scribe a line under and on top of angle on box side for replacement reference. Measure from bottom of box side to underside of angle. Write down this measurement. Make notes of angle and hole locations and where angle starts at front and back of box side. Drill out spot welds with the spot weld cutter. Set depth on cutter to drill only through angle. After drilling, remove angle and clean up the box area behind old angles. Set new angle in place using references, and transfer location to box side. (If you want to bolt angles to bed sides, note fender and stake pocket locations and decide where to drill holes to attach angles to box side). Drill holes and bolt angles to box side or spot weld angles into place.
