OEM Linking Pin: 2015 Ford F-150 Cab Floor

What does Ford say about sectioning the cab floor and reinforcements on a 2015-2020 Ford F-150?

Per the 2017 Ford F-150 Workshop manual:

"Note: the floor panel may be sectioned at any point providing restraints, seats, door hinge or striker provisions are met. Adjust the following procedure to meet repair needs."

"Notice: Sectioning may not be performed within 50 mm of restraints, seats, door hinge or door striker anchoring points. Failure to follow this direction may compromise vehicle integrity."

"Note: Floor panel reinforcements may be sectioned providing sectioning does not take place within 50 mm of weld nut or component mounting points."

Per our contact at Ford, a welded butt joint with 50 mm backing or a rivet-bonded lap joint with 25 mm overlap may be used to section the cab floor and cab floor reinforcements.
