    I think he meant the lift frame,calling it a light bar confused me at first too! :nod: By the way AFM, did you get it apart?

    I take it your trying to get the lift frame out of the truck side mount?
    Persuade it with a little flame wrench heating. You may have to repaint it afterward. Don't get it real hot, just enough to break the rust bound. I have heard they are no picnic to get out.

    Yep, they can be a real problem to remove after they've been on for years and they where installed without greasing the receiver tube's.A few important tool's for removal are a hammer,hot wrench,fluid film and a truck and a tow strap.

    thanks for all your help, wasnt much of a problem once i got the torch on it. ill be sure to grease it up real well every time i use it now.

    I wire brush it,clean/degrease then 2 coats of rust reformer on just the rusted parts. Then shoot it with rust resistant primer then good anti-rust paint. Remember the temp outside right now. You need at least 50 degrees 70 is better for the best results with spray paint.
    I hang parts on wire,warm them with my radiate propane heater. Then turn the heater off and shoot the paint. I open the garage door and clear out the fumes. After a while I go back to the heater and use it to speed up the drying. That's how I do winter painting if I need to.

    Glad to hear you got it apart! I send them out and get them sandblasted if there real rusty,then I usually spray them with gloss black Rustolum as it seem's to hold's up for a good long time and the price is right.
