It is really not hard at all. Flip it over so you are lookin at the inside of the gate. (part that faces inward toward the cab) unbolt those 3 bolts. On the ends of the gate. I think they are torx. not sure. Unbolt them, both sides. Unhook the rods from the gate handle. Pull out the latches on each side. Done. I think this how. NOt positive. Been a long time since i did mine
