Not that I know of... I'd imagine the hardest parts would be exhaust separation and TC bolts? Just properly marking and detaching the electrical goodies and plumbing. And having a cherry picker that can lift 1000lbs safely and high enough.

Thats one hell of a lift. I was debating pulling the tranny/tcase out with the motor but no way in hell is that going to happen

Yeah I also dont take the whole front clip off of my truck. It is easy enough to get off so I don't mind.

What do you do? Normally I don't take the bumper off... just so happens, I was taking mine off anyway.

I leave the grille and the front support. I just take the upper radiator bracket off. As you pull the engine out you twist it a bit and it will come right out. I will go take a couple pictures.

But steve, you now have a 2 person job... the hood! LOL

Seriously, either way works. Depends on what you have...

Garrett. I just found the source of all your problems. You were running a 7.3 trans cooler :poke:


PS, please tell me you don't take those 4 bolts, or 3 bolts depending on what part you're talking about, out of the motor mount to pull the motor. Did you just throw those motor mounts back in there for the picture or so you wouldn't loose them lol?
