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
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.
