I understood this to be a do-it-yourself service? No? Why?

How would YOU flush the radiator? A do-it-yourselfer would either do it WRONG or ILLEGALLY unless he is RICH and stupid enough.

I DON'T CARE WHAT YOU HAVE HEARD OR WILL BE TOLD BUT YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE DEX-COOL!!
NOW IS AS GOOD A TIME AS ANY TO CHANGE THE COOLANT.
THE FIRST THING I DID WAS TO CHANGE THAT S TUFF IN MY CHEVY. AFTER WARRANTY WAS OUT.
NOW WHAT ENGINE IS IN YOUR TRUCK SO WE CAN HELP WITH DRAIN & REFILL.
YES IT MAKES A DIFFERENCE!
