How to pull 6.0 in 2004 F-350

I was curious to know if the front grill/front clip come off to pull the motor, or if there is enough room come out up and over. The problem is I have a front bumper, grill guard in the way that probably weighs a ton.

The "easy" way is to use a twin post lift to lift the cab off the chassis. Then roll the chassis back to service the engine. This is how most shops do it.

I have a standard engine hoist. Can I make this work?

Ok. Where do they hook up to the cab as well as the engine? What has to be disconnected from the cab?

I would say that everything has to come off of the cab, anything that goes from the frame/cab that is attatched to the engine, this is a pretty involved job
