Once the truck is in, the first order of business is removing the battery cable from the battery so there are no surprise sparks. On air bag trucks it is a good idea to pull the airbag fuse until the very end in case you bump the sensor. Next to go would have been the upper fan shroud, except this vehicle was missing it. Normally, you save the upper half to re-install on the radiator once the lift is done. Now check over the engine bay to look for any misc. wires, hoses, cables, etc. that do not have enough slack to allow for three inches of lift. Remember, that only the body is moving, not the frame or engine, so those body to engine ground straps need to be checked also. Once happy that everything has enough room to grow it is time to go underneath.
