I am about to begin this long overdue job at 140,000 miles, and am wondering how the heck you reach these things. Was wondering what other people use to get the job done?

I have a 7-ft wingspan, so I just reached across the fender and cut the hoses off :flipoff2:

If you haven’t, definitely remove the plastic cover. They are kind of frustrating, but as you should be replacing the tubing as well you really only need to be careful that you don’t get any chunks of the heater tees into the lines you aren’t replacing.

I'm short (5'6") and my truck is lifted. I used a short ladder to climb onto the ARB and just layed on a moving blanket. Worked great, staged tools and the new T's and removed the cover first.

I’m 6’3” and did the same. It’s a long way back there. Plus I replaced all the heater hoses so had to get to the firewall
