    I reccomend getting a manual on your vehicle. I picked one up for minw and in some cases it is vague, but can help you identify what things you may encounter during dissassembly with some brief descriptions.

    I keep mine in my SUV religiously, or in every vehicle I have ever owned as a matter of fact.......

    best of luck!!:p

    Nothing special about replacing the TPS.. Just pull the battery cable... Pull the snow shield off the top of the intake (if you have one).. unhook the electrical connector.. remove 2 screws... remove/replace and put it back together...

    When your done plug the battery back in (should be 10 minutes by now) and the truck will re-learn everything with the new TPS (which is why you took of the battery cable when yous tarted)..

    When i replaced mine, (super easy) i left my battery cable off for about 30 minutes...
    usually whenever i do anything involving the computer i leave it off for at least a half hour.
