    Ya already found it!

    Just take all the bolts out. There are also two "security" bolt underneath the bedside. You have to unbolt the bedside panels to access them. There are Torx but I forgot what number. Once you get them out, throw them in the trash, you don't need them.

    Next, get inside and push up on the top with your back to break the seal. Be prepared for a torn seal if yours has never been off.

    Then, sucker one of your friends to help you lift it off. It ain't heavy, only about 180lbs.

    That's all there is to it...

    I back mine up under a set of scaffolding, slide some 2x4's up under it and drive out. The Torx bolts are #25 tamper resistant I think. Go get it at AutoZone. Get two, the first will probably shatter, did to me.
