    Default Cab question

    I was thinking about removing the cab it seemed like it'd be an easier way to take out the old transfer case and put in the new one. My question is would I be able to or with the help of maybe one more person lift the cab off manually if I stripped off the doors, windshield, and roof and all other excess parts ( in other words round about how heavy is it)? Can put it in without moving the cab it just looks like it'd be easier with it off. My engine hoist only lifts so high so I figured with the cab off it'd give me that extra leeway. Any suggestions are appreciated.

    Go rent a transmission jack, 1000 times less work.

    Cab isnt easy. Especially on one you havent done before. I've taken my cab off so many times to say that it only takes me about 15mins. Longer to run the straps under the cab on both sides than to yank it off
