n) Remove the doors from the vehicle. Caution must be used, as each door weighs
approximately 100 lb. Support each door with the proper lifting equipment before
removing it. The door can be removed by disconnecting the nine bolts attaching the
hinge to the cab frame. The hinge may have silicone between it and the cab; if
necessary, pry between the cab and the hinge to remove it.
o) Remove the Side Grab Handles on each side of the vehicle. This is done by removing
the two bolts located at each end of the Grab Handle.
p) Remove the Bolt located next to the Grab Handle, as shown in Figure 10. Do this on
both sides of the vehicle.
q) Remove the Mud Flaps from each side of the vehicle (see Figure 10). This is done by
removing several bolts that are used to attach each one to the underside of the cab.
r) Remove the Side Marker Lights on each side of the vehicle. This is done by removing
the two screws and the cover plate on the front of the Side Marker Light (see Figure 10).
Once the cover plate is removed, four additional screws can be seen that attach the
base plate to the cab. Remove those screws. Mark and disconnect the connecting
wires from the inside of the vehicle, and then feed the wires out through the hole in the
cab and remove the light.
