Anyone up for a case of beer and a motor swap this weekend?

I don't really need any help (I don't think) it would just be nice to have an extra set of hands that knows a little about 7.3s around for the job. Maybe someone with a hoist big enough to pick the engine out of a lifted truck, my tractor won't pick it up. send me a message or post here. I'll provide the burgers and the beer

Good luck completing it in a weekend. Granted they aren't as complicated as the newer model trucks are but still it is a LOT of work to swap engines. Ask me how I know lol.

i'm certain it will take me more than a weekend. poor girl's been down for almost 2 years now. front clip is already off. My next problem is a hoist, the new engine picks my tractor off the ground no problem so working around the 4" lift will be a pain.
