why would you take the dash out? you need to take off bodymount bolts (duh) most of the time the gas tank,bumpers,also help to take the front clip off.wire harness.humm oh yea steering column.I would take the motor out to work easier too

You don't have to take the motor and tranny out to take the body off the frame. You have to disconnect all the wires going to the body from them, but you don't have to remove them.

taking everything off makes the job much easier,also if your going to reinforce your going to want to wrap the crossmember.

you can start by removing the body mount bolts, front fenders (front clip), and disconnect the brake lines from the master cylinder. then any other wires. also dont forget the shifting link that connect the column to the tranny. you can remove the motor and tranny when the body is off. it's much easier.
