We decided we need to lift the cab high enough to allow the frame to roll out from underneath and our supports needed to be wide enough apart to let the chassis roll between the supports. A trip to the local lumber yard for some ten foot 4×4’s and we’re ready to roll. The process was actually pretty easy:
- Un-bolt the cab
- Lift the back of the cab while your friend slides the 4×4 between the frame and cab
- Repeat for the front of the cab
- Remove the front wheels and leave the chassis on the floor jack to roll it out the back
The front wheels needed coming off because we couldn’t get enough height on the cab to allow the chassis to roll out under, leaving the frame on the floor jack and lowering the front end made the task easy. Now I can really get that needle scaler into all the nooks and crannies under the cab.
