I've never actually done an injector swap or had the VC off for that matter but id have to say you only need to drain the bank your working on

Only on the bank you are working on. Are you comfortable with the rest of the procedure?

I don't even bother draining the rails. I just pull the glow plugs. Bar the motor over one revolution. Put the VC on with a couple of bolts, do not plug in the 42 pin connector, bump the starter for a few revolutions. Pull the valve cover back off, put everything back together.

Oh yeah, I lay a straightedge (2ft level) across the top of the injectors to make sure they are all the same height (lets you know the injector is seated).

I was looking for an 08 and up tailgate. Found the complete bed for about the same price. My fenders were oxidized really bad. It was the correct color. Bolted up perfect. Lines up perfect.
