Cab on , took the inner fenders out, no special tools needed , had to use the old hammer to put a little dent in the fire wall ( witch is way thinner than i thought it would be) about 1 inch deep to get the back bolt out on the drivers side. managed to get the passengers head off with out taking the heater box off the fire wall, but took it off for installing the head because it made it reatty hard to get the head out. taking the whole heater box off is way easyer than i looks, i think it was only 5 nuts from the inside. just waiting for my heads to get dont and my injectors from warrens diesel.
