Nothing really needs to be removed. However if you have a serpentine belt tool your life will be a lot easier.

There is a catch underneath the tensioner below the alternator on the passenger side, it helps to have 2 people to do it. You have one guy on the passenger side of the truck pull on the belt, when the tensioner comes up the other guy can flip the catch to hold the tensioner up. Then once you replace the belt you just stand on the passenger side of the truck and pull on the belt and the catch releases and the tensioner is released. I used to have a picture of that little catch but I don't know if I can find it. The catch is easier to see from underneath the truck. No tools needed at all if you find the catch. If I find the pic I will post it.

Here you can see the catch, the picture was taken from underneath the truck.

It looks like you move the tool toward the center of the engine to release and lock the tensioner. Is that right?

A 1/2" drive ratchet and a 30" titanium lacrosse shaft get it done for me. Getting it down into the square recess on the tensioner is a PITA, but once that's done it's cake.

It takes less than 30 seconds and no tools to loosen the belt. Like fonecop1 said, there is a lever under the idler pulley. With one hand pull the belt towards the passenger fender, with the other reach under the pulley and engage the lock. Keep pulling the belt harder and harder and press the catch in. Once the belt is replaced, simply pull the belt again, the catch automatically releases and slowly release the tension on the belt.

I use the gorilla method myself but it helps to be 350lbs... Harbor freight sells their version of the breaker bar, it is only $18... Serpentine Belt Tool Kit If you use the alt tip method make sure not to let the alt strain the bolts with less then half of the bolt threaded into the bracket. The aluminum bracket is soft and you can strip out the threads... Good luck, that belt is really hidden in there... If you get any car magazines, HF typically has a 20% coupon and one get a certain item free coupon.

I'm no gorilla at 165 lb but I have no problem with the gorilla method. If you have trouble it may be that your tensioner is seized up.
