A service manual always comes in handt for DIY projects. Nothing different about changing pads on a truck, but the caliper bolts take a metric allen socket wrench, and they are very tight. I think they used Loc-Tite at the factory. The manual will tell you to use tool XXXXXX to push back the caliper pistons, but most anything handy will work, I used a C clamp. But check how much fluid is in the reservoir, and possibly suck some out, since what is in the lines is forced back into the reservoir
