No it won't make weird noises if you tighten everything back down.

I'm surprised we don't have to take the cab off to change oil! Lol! I'm bound and determined to have a complete fiberglass hood and fenders to lift forward to make these a lot easier to work on. Like the Road tractors!

Nope it won't rattle or squeak at all if everything is done right. But the cabs are heavy as hell and have to come up a lot to clear everything.

for good measure spray the hell out of the bolts because some or all may be hell to get out because of the dirt build up.the pb blaster is the best stuff i have found for rusted up bolts and nuts.

Its going to be tough to fully remove cab without a lift. I'd just pull the front clip and do it that way if you have no lift. Easiest way lifting the cab is with a lift by far.

i agree and coming out the front is how i prefer to do them.i myself can have the motor out in under 2 hours.i guess you could say i have done quite a few and i have gotten pretty dam good and setting that trans and tq converter to where they go right together and bolt up.but if you guys have never done this just take your time and ask questions and you will get through it no problem.

How do you do them through the front? Do u pull the engine? I'm all for doing it the easiest way, never done this before so not sure the best way to do it
