Re: Newbie Needs Guidance
Get a copy of a Chilton's manual or the Ford manuals for your truck (I got both plus a Ford service CD). You can look these over and determine what you feel comfortable tackling and what you want to have done. The Ford manuals list special tools you might need for some jobs and the diagrams and directions will give you an idea what kind of work you're facing. Check Half Price Books or eBay for fair prices on the books or CD (I found a Chilton's at Half Price and got my Ford books and CD on eBay).
