Most guys only use an extension, ratchet, universal joint, and some guys use a bit of hose to put over the plug to get them in and started when replacing. I'm sure other guys will come on to help. From what they say, it is a PITA. Good luck
It's amazing the price differences between dealerships. My neighbor with an '06 Ram Hemi 4x2 just got it done while I was in Georgia and he was pissing and moaning about them charging him $185 to do it!
But yeah, do a quick search, there a plethora of threads and I'm sure a DIY on it.
Most are easy enough to get to, two of them are a bigger bi*ch than my ex wife however. It's a good 2 1/2 - 3 hour job and I personally don't know how anybody could do it without the piece of hose...

I am coming up on this pretty soon too. I ordered a set of these to hopefully make things a little easier
These have a magnet inside to hold the plug, and the extensions are attached, so they can't pop off while trying to extract the old plug. those coupled with a u joint, and a swivel head ratchet and I think that I should be pretty well set. I just have to prepare myself for the ~4 hours it is going to take.
