This is*for a crew cab.
Evacuate the AC unit
Remove the AC lines - one off of the condensor top line and the other one off of the accumulator
Remove body bolts:
There are two 18 mm nuts on core support. There are 4 bolts inside if its an extended cab or regular cab and 6 if its a 4 door super cab. Pull back carpet from firewall, remove BIG floor plugs and remove cab bolts both sides. Regular and extended cab: remove or tilt rear seat back, pull back carpet and remove rear cab mount bolts. Supercab trucks have mounts behind front seats and the rear seat needs to be removed to lift carpet to remove bolts.
Under the truck:
Drain coolant and*remove lower radiator hose
Remove the 2 power steering cooler lines
Note - some recommend to NOT remove the power steering lines. Instead, just take the lines off going to it and take both line off of the hydroboost and gear box. Look down the drivers side under degas bottle you will be able to tell what to unhook as it varies by model year transmission (so on so forth). Also if its an 03 there is a connector under the cab that has to be disconnected.
Remove the 2 tranny cooler lines
Unplug the fog lights
Remove the flap under the radiator
Remove pyro probe (if applicable), emergency-brake cable, transmission shift linkage, and the ground strap under passenger side
Unhook ABS sensors in each front wheel well.
If its a manual shift 4x4, remove the bolts from underneath off of the shifter
Pass side of the motor:
Remove the battery
Remove the hot CAC tube
Remove the 2 AC lines
Remove the MAP line
Remove one hot wire connector for the vacuum pump and the ground cable behind battery
Remove one small vacuum line
Remove ground cable behind MAP sensor on the firewall
Unhook heater core supply line.
Remove the battery
Remove the cold CAC tube
Unfeed positive cable from under the radiator brackets
Remove the air intake
Remove the radiator overflow bottle and upper radiator hose
Unhook 2 lines that feed power steering fluid to the master cylinder
Remove the 2 lines from the power steering fluid*reservoir
Remove the 2 front cables from computer behind battery - these are the 2 large cables that feed up the frame rail
Remove 5 electrical connectors (drivers side near the power steering reservoir, and on drivers side wheel well)
Remove 3 brake fittings in front of battery

All the electrical connections can only fit back in the right spot they are all different sized.* The fan shroud will go up with the body you don't need to remove it
Lift the cab up, slowly checking for anything you may have missed.
