I have a method to it after say... 10 or so starters. only takes 10 minutes now if I time myself. The key is taking off the two middle spark plug wires and snaking through the 8mm attached to a 6" extension, then crawl under the truck and hook on the ratchet... but yeah, they suck to do and I hate it when i know mine is going!
