Welding precautions

I have to do some welding on the F250. Is it safe to just disconnect both batteries and weld, or is there more to disconnect?

Be sure your ground is on the same metal you are welding -- ground loops from improperly placed grounds are what does the damage

Soo ...don't hook to the ball hitch and weld on the exhaust pipe

General note:
For all those wanting a premium silicone sealer Kubota 70000-73764 is the best your gonna find. This is a hybrid gray silicone that uses solvent rather than acid to start the curing reaction, this makes it safe for aluminum and and any surface that involves coolant.
