(Assuming you have a garage/flat ground to work on...)

#1)
Press in the Emergency Brake and jack the truck up....And ALWAYS, ALWAYS, ALWAYS, use jackstands.....Guys, I CANNOT, stress the importance of those 2 mundane pieces of equipment....They saved my *** tonight....Just so happened, I had them in place, and was needing about 1" extra room....Couple pumps of the jack....I was set.....Then it came...

A low creaking/groaning noise....And I started scrambling as fast as a 287lb man can, to clear the truck...Then...BAM....The truck came down, and the jackstand was there to catch it....My night woulda ended up VERY differently, if I hadn't invested the $25 for the set.....

In other words, and I hate to be like this...But if you don't use a jackstand, you, are in short, a freakin' *******...Not an idiot...They have self preservation instincts....But a *******....
