Lifted the cab, 6.0

My little bro (articcatzl440) works at a shop now and we had to do an oil cooler on our parents truck so here are some pics. We did a new oil cooler, RCD egr delete, and an updated STC fitting while we were in there. They didn't have the money for ARP's or they would have went in too. Enjoy!

Nice looking shop. Did mine a couple weeks ago in-cab. Still waiting for my knuckles to heal up.

The truck is done. Didn't just do it "because its cool", we did it because it saved a ton of time and we felt better about getting things done right.

I agree with that statement. Funny thing is, one of our fellow members within our inner circle on "the other website" likes to accuse me of lifting cabs for every job, which is not the case at all. I lift cabs ONLY when I'm removing cylinder head(s) or the engine itself. On a 6.4L, on the other hand.......

Each to his own opinion. Even if the time was the same, we know everything went back together nice and tight and right! No reaching way the heck back there to tighten bolts or make gaskets barely fit.

6.4 you definitely have to lift the cab for an oil cooler. I've still never tried turbos cab on. don't want to

we're all justified by lifting the cab for 6.0 head work. i don't care who says 6.0 heads can be done cab on. unless i end up outside doing headgaskets in the parking lot then the cab is coming off
