Hey Rex,
I wish we had something on paper that I could send you but I don't. Most of the stuff we do, was from training that we came up with or calls that we made for advice. We usually go to junk yards and try different things. Tip vehicle on side/ upside down and then go trom there. Sometimes we just come up if off the wall scenearios, to see how we would approach things. As far as cribbing goes, there's only so much you can do with the equipment we carry on the rig. I just try to make sure the guys understand the how are we craibbing, why are we cribbing, what are we cribbing with,(step blocks, 4by etc). Air bags, the biggest thing is capacities and cribbing as you go. I try to have them do multiple lifts. Gets more guys involved, plus the air operator needs to be on his A game. Not that he should be any ways.
As far as stabilizing goes, we use winch, struts, come alongs. We just try all kinds of things because you never what you'll be able to use. I know this is all basic stuff and I wish I had more for you but it's all up to your imagination on what to do
