Why would you put the cab on the back of the frame your creating more work for yourself. If you dont have a lift you can do head gaskets outside the cab just pull the front of the truck apart and pull the turbo off and pull the motor out...
IF you have a lift. Dont waste your time pulling the bed off.
Tools you will need.
1/2 in drive Impact gun
3/8ths mini air ratchet
1/2 in snap on 80 tooth flex head ratchet with long bar
1/2 in drive torque wrench
8mm 3/8ths semi deep
10mm 3/8ths semi deep
T30 torx socket
T40/45 torx socket
19mm socket (2 nuts next to the radiator)
7/8ths socket cab bolts
15/16ths socket cab bolts
12pt 13/16ths or 11/16ths 1/2 drive for head stud nuts
Ok. 1st step, undo the belt tension, use a pry bar push the belt watch the tensioner walk and there should be a lock on the bottom push it in release the bar slowly and let it rest on the lock.
then use a thin flat blade screw driver and pop the shroud lock off.
Get the grounds 1 is on the fire wall going to the block remove it from the firewall the other goes from body to chassis under pass side door.
Get the shrouds out, drain radiator, remove the alternator the batteries, remove the radiator, undo the cab bolts, hook the a/c machine up evacuate the system, undo the pinch bolt 12 or 13 mm on the steering shaft, remove the hydroboost lines at the master, remove the master flop it on the intake, remove the heater core hose next to the alternator. Remove the pcm connector going to the ficm and thats about it off the top of my head. then the cab is ready to go up.
