Engine R&R "can" be done without lifting the cab, BUT, you will make up new 4 letter
words doing it that way. If you have access to a lift, do your self a favor and raise
the cab. Another concern is lifting the motor high enough to get it out of the engine
bay on a 4x4. A cherry picker won't do it. I did a number if engines on F-series and
Expeditions, the first one without lifting the cab. I'll NEVER do it that way again,
everything was a struggle. You can have the cab off in about 1.5 hrs, it's not hard at
If you don't have access to a lift, you should seriously consider having someone
else do the job. Good luck.
