If you are willing to take off the hood, front bumper and front core support you should be able to pull it straight out the front. Not sure if that's any easier than lifting the cab though. Would be much simpler if you don't have access to a lift. Still would require a monster engine hoist though.

Taking the cab off will make the job much easier.

you can pull it out of the front after removing the grill, bumper, radiator ect. lots easier on the back if you pull the cab.

Pulling a 6.0 the hard way

I have tried to make a guide hope it helps. The second page is pasted here

Raise and block the truck. Using a suitable transmission jack remove the tranny and slide back. It's just easier all the way around.
Hook up your engine hoist and remove the motor mount bolts, lift the motor as high as you can and remove the motor mounts from the block (pay attention to how they face and come off.)
The rest is a matter of working the motor out comeing forward on the lift and comeing up as you go.
Its all trial and error here. Some helpers and a couple of 4 foot long pry bars can come in handy now.
As I said this is not a job for the faint of heart or of little patience.
Best of luck to you.
