Lifting the Body

Greetings,
I have a new to me 1996 E-350 Super Duty van with a 7.3 diesel, at 103k mi.
Access to the engine is an unbelievable nightmare!
Has anyone published a safe back yard procedure for lifting the front of the body to access the engine? I already have a gantry.
Reason: I would like to change the fuel filter and clean it's strainer. Ford dealer wants $185.00 to do that.
Am I being naive?
Thanks in advance,
Dick

if you are referring to the strainer as the filter housing then it is easier to remove the turbo to remove the filter housing.
If you only re going to replace the fuel filter then you do not need to remove the turbo
