Kealel,Nice write up !
Although I have never done one in the truck, if you had a home-made stand, then out of the truck is easier... AND it lets you look at all of the piece to make sure they are in good shape, two birds with one stone !

Just two suggestions, look at the gears and differiental while the diff cover is off, look for any chipping, or even cracks, spin the diff and see how the bearings feel and maybe even sound, now is a good time.

Two... if you are replacing any brake lines, use Stainless Steel Lines if available, it will reduce future problems with rusting.

Just me thinking out loud !
