How To Remove The Cab From A Ford Truck

Hi all, I've been lurking on this forum site for 2 months after deciding to replace my 97 f250 4x4 (460). Two teenage boys fighting for leg room in a supercab but mostly replacing a 12' camper with a 34' 5th wheel toyhauler, just could'nt get up the hills with the new load. Found this forum really great, decided against the "sick-o" and got the 7.3. Anyway I want to add a small contribution to all who helped me with my decision, here is a link to add info to a thread re removal of cab from chassis- http://flatratetech.com/images/nav_how_to.htm

Hello, I just ran across this site and found your reply. I am replacing a damaged 00 F-350 4x4 AT Supercab with a 99 F-350 4x4 AT Supercab. I rebuild salvage vehicles from time to time for personal use. This is my first truck. If you would be willing to share your tips on replacing a cab I would love to hear them.

Thanks, Todd

Hello Frank,

I just found out that I have blown HG on my 6.0L. I am very mechanically inclined and I have the aptitude to rework my heads and replace the HG and the ARP studs. My biggest unknown is raising the cab, once I get it raised (approx. how high do you need to raise it?) Once I get to the engine I am home free.

Can you share your procedure on raising the cab of a 2003 crew cab? Someone told me that there is 8 bolts that mount the cab on the frame. I need to know where they are and what elese must be removed and disconnected such as the steering shaft, wiring harnesses, and radiator.

Regards,

OneTon4Fun

I have just started the process of removing the Cab for and engine overhaul. I have a rotary lift and am very capable of this but some tips tricks and directions will make it go easier for would love for you to share. I have a 97' 250. Right now I am removing the frame to cab bolts and the one under the passenger footwell just keeps spinning and spinning what is the best way to get above it to hold the bolt in place to take it off?
