How do you fit a socket back there to get at this beast? Is there a trick?

I'm changing my glowplugs and that bolt is the only think stopping me from getting at the driver side plugs!! and It's cold outside :crazy:

Most of the time a lil patience goes a long ways. You will run into those cases where you got an open end on a bolt and you have to do the ol' 1/8th turn then flip the wrench routine but that's just how things go sometimes.

Woble extensions, flex swivel, patience og Job. 4 hours later, nothing.

Hurt my left knee in the process. If this a sign for things to come, Bertha will be sold. Bball for 30 years wore my knees, but never thought my truck would.

I run an 8" lift i did not even have to take the tires off to do my glowplugs
however, i have only done the passenger side so far my driver side has no issues

I will say I took one look at doing them from the top and said no way are my hands fitting back there lol
