Remove engine without removing cab possible?

Local guy told me the only way to replace the 6.0 is to remove the cab. I have done an engine swap with a 7.3 no problem so i wanted to ask you guys who are familiar with the 6.0's if this is the case or not as i have no way to remove the cab. Thanks

Maybe if you removed the front clip and the core support you could take it out the front? But my buddy told me that the core support on an '05 up is welded in, so that might not be much better.

I know on F150 Lightnings they would remove the motor out the bottom, but dropping the whole front suspension seems about as bad as taking off the cab.

it is possible to remove the motor without removing the cab. ive personally never done it though, a buddy has and said you basically have to stand the motor on end, but it will come out.

I have seen them pulled out the front with the core support removed. Don't remember what year it was but the core support was a bolt in affair. If the 05 up are not bolted in that'll suck though I do have means to lift the cab.

We got here in town that only pulls the motor to do the head studs. Pretty big shop round here. Performance Truck And Diesel. He told me it takes a little extra time but all of his customers were complaining we he lifted the cabs about the moaning, creaking and popping you get once you lift the cab. I have not had mine done yet but i have heard others mention these problems after a body off head job.

The dealer pulled my motor to do the heads without removing anything but the hood. Don't know how but it is possible.

My studs were done with the cab off and my truck doesn't make any squeaking creaking noises.
