just do it with no shirt on and take a shower when you are done.
be careful of:
-incense
-lit candles
-cigars
-cigarettes
-zippo lighters
-butane lighters
-lit matches
-pyromaniacs
-firemen
-welders
-sparklers
-any sort of firework
-guns

You forgot weapons of mass destruction, i think those cause some kind of spark or flame too.

I know it's done, and that you weren't going for the inertia switch idea, but for the future... flipping the truck is the easiest way to hit that switch and probably the most fun

when you change the diff fluids, use full synthetic.........75w90

when you flush your tranny, use mercron 5 tranny fluid......

sorry i said it a little confusing....

did your truck smoke like crazy when you put in the sea foam?
