My guess is yes....
and unless you know what it looks like, I bet you will have to find another extension.

I am freaking out I knew I couldn't do this by myself, anyone have any ideas? That is my daily driver and I need it for sunday. Everything is taken apart the bumpers are off and ready to lift just need to install the shift extension thats the last step.

As long as your Steering is not conected you can still lift the truck you just need to put in before you go anywhere. You can do it no worries.

roll pins? We care a ton of different sizes at my work, Ace Hardware. so check local hardware stores. Bring in your part, because there are tons of sizes. Else, idk, someone will say something.

got the shift extension installed, they had pins at ace hardware, I got the bed lifted. I can NOT get the cab bolts out the front two, I have not tried the others yet, but I used an impact and heated up the bolts and I got the nuts off of the top of them but the bolts themsselves will not come out. How do I get them out?
ALso, The ground strap under the hood, I used an impact like it said in the sticky and the wire wound up around the bolt and ripped out of the engine, where do I reconnect that side too?

normally its stuck in the bushing. have someone that isnt a twig sit on the core support right over the hole with the body not raised. the upper nut should be off and you should be working on the bolt whats happening is the bushing is spinning.

UPDATE: need more help

Ok got the bolt out, ran into another problem, the rear cab mount bushing was stripped, I just put through a longer bolt and nut, one that was thinner, and it worked. Everything is lifted, rear bumpers on, shift ext. in, steering shaft ext. in, radiator dropped. Just need to do the bumper.
Couple questions.

First problem. When I was lifting the body the ebrake cable had too much stress on it, so i had to pop it out up front. Now, it is dangling and I cant get it back in to that hole up front it is too tight. I need my ebrake since its a manual and my driveway is a big hill. What can I do?

Second, what do you use to cut the bumper for the tow hooks? Can someone show some pics of diff. ideas?

Third problem: I used an impact to get off the ground strap under the hood. The wire wrapped around the bolt and ripped out of the engine. I have no idea where it went to. What can I do for this?

Fourth, where is that hose that people here mentioned that I have to move after the lift, where is it and how do I hold it back?

Fith, I can't figure out the gap guards, anyone have pictures of the front ones? not the homemade ones

Help is appreciated I want to be done by noon today hopefully. I already have 17 hours in to this.
