Negative is the first off, the last to put on.

I understand the reasoning being taking the negative off first, however I have a vehicle where you have to take off the positive first in order to get at the negative. I think there are a frame rod in the way. Anyway, you CAN take the positive off first...just make sure it does not contact any metal.
