first off when u get the new one make sure it includes the bypass pipe
(black steel press fit, electrolytically welded to the Al pump body)

break the fan free b4 u pull the serp belt

can be R&Red with the shroud in place

there is another hose nipple that needs to be with the new pump can't recall
if it's input or output

have to move the alt and AC compressor out of the way, no need to break the
AC hoses

depending on mileage your truck is old enough that the timing chain
tensioner may be suspect so timing set replacement may be a good might as
well......not sure on the year they changed the parts....
