Gonna pull the engine this summer, what do you use?

I know this sounds a little extreme, but my warranty will be up this summer and I want to pull the engine to do a 100,000 km/63,000 mi check up. (Done this on almost every vehicle ive owned, Im a HD Mech and obsessive about maint). Gonna check rod and main bearing tolerances, stud/black onyx head gaskets, GoGo diesel EGR delete replacement intake, and replace every o-ring I could possibly find, do all the updates (turbo drain tube etc.). My question is what have you fellow stroker owners used to pull the engine? I know Ford has a special bracket used for lifting by the front, but can you get an engine hoist in there with intake and everything off and use chains/lifting lugs? Just dont want to put a lot of time into this pull and find out I NEED the special engine lifting tool to do this and wait weeks for it to come in. If you need the lifting tool what would be the part # and supplier as the service manager looked at me like I was from outer space when I asked him this very question. Any help would be appreciated...Thanks gentleman.

black onyx head gaskets are overpriced. Get the victor reinz. Same thing, half the price.

As for pulling the engine for a checkup, to each his own (id get a blackstone report instead-lol). I've done 3 6.0 swaps this week alone. I'd never want to do it with the cab on. It takes me about 2hrs to pull the cab, and another 30 minutes to have the engine on the hoist. If I had to attempt it in the truck-I'd probably have killed myself by now.

We have the engine out in under 2 hours cab on at our dealership day in and day out. It's not tough to pull at all.

I never said it was difficult. I said I dislike doing it that way. I like the room removing the cab affords me, and my large hands. I guess its a matter of preference. Me personally, I can do the job faster with the cab off. I know this isn't an option for everyone though.

Do not use tha Black Onyx gaskets, I have heard of too many of them going bad. Stick with OEM Ford gaskets. It would also be a good time to install upgraded injectors/turbo.
