The 6.0 engine is designed to be pulled up level and removed out of the front of the truck.

All coolers and front clip are to be removed as well as the upper crossmember support. When hung correctly you merely need to lift to clear the lower crossmember by only a few inches and then it will walk right out.

If the tranny isn't seperateing ya missed a bolt or nut on the flex-plate or flywheel. They useually seperate pretty easy but sometimes a judicious whack with a large hammer is required.

Dannyboy is right, the motor gets lifted up enough to clear the crossmember then slid forward out the front of the truck, you can even leave the hood on. The flexplate should be attached to the engine. You need to unbolt the torque converter from the flexplate and if required take a dead blow and tap around the bellhousing to release the seal. If you left the up pipes on, you should remove them.

The flywheel stays with the engine, the torque converter stays with the transmission. You need to pull/drop the transmission rearward and ensure enough of the front end is dismantled. Use a rachet strap to support the transmission. The bumper can usually stay on, but it is only a few bolts.

The engine goes forward and up. Pull the engine?
