Cab Removal

Anyone have a good detailed checklist on removing the cab for the OBS. We are doing a major overhaul and after talking to many people decided that is the best route. Any input or tips or tricks would be greatly appreciated.

Like major engine overhaul or body? It's easy enough to pull the engine with the cab and front clip on

Engine Overhaul

We are fixing cracked studs on the exhaust manifolds, replacing the up pipes, rebuild the turbo, upgrading to an intercooler. No body work at all.

Why not just pull the engine. Remove the exhaust, unbolt and slide the tranny back. Take off the fan, unhook elect./ground connections, couple of fuel lines, remove 4 engine mount nuts and you're good.

Only reason to pull cab is if you need/want to do frame work and replace body mounts while your at it. I did it on mine, but its a PITA. Easiest way is a swing arm 2post lift, position arms under the cab evenly and lift away. Nice thing about it is it ends up right back where you want it. Good luck
