Re: Need a couple measurements

if the tank is out of the cab you should be able to see where the rivet holes were & be able to redrill them from the back side. the plates that are there are the original reinforcement plates.

easiest way I found to get the rods out is to spray them with kroil, tap them out about 3/8 or so & chuck a variable speed drill on them giving them a slow spin & drawing them out
