    In the haynes manuel the first thing it says to do before pulling the rear driveshaft is secure the rear axle on jackstands. Is this really necesary? I would rather have them on the ground so I can use the parking brake. TIA--B

    <font color="green"> Not neccessary, just chock the wheels to make sure that the truck isn't going anywhere. </font color>

    I took mine out, Well it took its self out with the wheels on the ground /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif . I also put it back in with all the wheels on the ground. I think it says this so that you won't crawl under the truck while it's balancing on a jack /forums/images/icons/wink.gif .
