When i switched mine 1/2 came out and 1/2 we had to cut.
Just hit them with an impact wrench and they should come right off then just make sure your all unconnected and lift it right up.

Bolts in the bed, impact of if they wont come out, grind the heads off. Disconnect wiring, and fuel filler and pull it off.

Get about 6 dudes and it is real easy, just make sure everything is disconnected before you yank a gonad!! Oh PB blaster sprayed on the bolts a few days before removal helps a lot!!

Send a message via AIM to ford_trck
That or find a nut that will thread into the bolt and weld it where the clip was
