Why not a 3 inch diesel body lift?

After working on this thing the last few months, it seams like it would it would be so much easier if there was a 3 inch body lift for the diesel. How much easier would it be to remove the turbo, exhaust, heads, and just have more room to work. To me it seams like a 3 inch body lift should be a must. Heck ford lifts the body anythime they work on it.

You want to lift the body just so you can work on it?

Yes it would make it so much easier to work on. If you have worked on your truck yourself, you know at least 1/4 to 1/2 of the engine is under the cowl. Plus the turbo and all the exhaust plumbing. When i did the egr valve and cooler delete everything was so crowded.

I have worked on my truck plenty of times and know how much of a pain it can be, but don't you think that raising the body would make it even more of a pain in the arse leaning over the engine bay?

I had to lay on top of the engine to work on it anyways. It would be nice not have wrestle the turbo out while sharp parts are ripping my guts out. Lol

You can't raise the body of a superduty 3 inches. First off the top radiator hose wouldn't stretch that far. Those bastards are expensive too.
