    I need to pull back a few inches of the fabric on the ceiling to put on my cab lights, How is it attached, can I just pull it back?

    Dont pull JUST the fabric off...pull the complete headliner panel down that the fabric is glued too.

    You have to remove the plastic trim around the outer sides, including the pillar molding...then pull the headliner down. If you only need access at the front, you'll just need to pull the front and side trim plastic down. That should give you enough room to tug the headliner down for cab light access.

    Pillar moldings, thats what their called! Boy are they a :realmad: to remove. Broke a clip in the process. I didnt know what to call the whole thing, but I did just remove the headliner while I was working, got it all done last night, put the interior back together about an hour ago, and now Im done. A piece of the headliner came detached from the velcro, but it still stays up, some dubble sided tape might help, but its fine.

    I learned that the best way to get a project done is to quit asking questions, and just go for it. Now onto the body lift (arrived yesterday) but Ill need some help with that!

    I made that line with the intentions that somebody would get a good laugh. :p Or call me stupid. Glad it turned out the be #1.

    I am learning alot from hands on experience. But its a $2600 truck and I worry about messing it up worse than it is. But I get a little to worried most of the time. I have two freinds who can/will help me with the body lift. I can do most of it, but its a little complicated and I figure a body lift isnt the time to make a mistake.
