Well here goes, another cab in the air

It wasnt too bad up to this point and i think it just got easier. I spent way too long messing with some things so the entire cab lift took an estimated 6 hours - i was stopping to mess with filtering vegi oil and stuff along the way.
I wanted to be really meticulous and not screw up a pricy wire harness, hose or brake line. but its up and the top end will come off tomorrow if I can move in the morning - this is hard friggin work for a guy who has worked behind a desk for 20 years AND is pushing 43. Its been pretty fun thus far other than the fatigue. More pics to come.
Parts to come include ARPs, egr delete (though the 2003 doesnt really need it at all), HPOP (2003 was a bad year for these) new gaskets on everything that i can, possibly some injectors, hoses, belt and all the obvious other needed parts.

Looks good Clay. I have to imagine that was not easy. I am surprised that you are not throwing more hard parts in the engine while you are at.

Congrats, Clay! Took some doing to get it lifted, but you'll find that it's MUCH easier than having to go over the top using a topside creeper.

Thanks y'all. I took the day off, can barely move today.
Had some other running around to do anyway.
Ryan, what other parts were you thinking about?
Money IS an issue here, hence im doing it myself. I want to get done under 2 grand and I have yet to buy a HPOP, oil cooler and gaskets yet. Still need hoses and a belt too. May need an injector or 2 once I test them. And if the heads need work...well...

I was thinking more along the lines of if money were not an option.

Just yet another EERILY familiar sight to me, looking through the photos. I just turned 43 today, so I can relate very well to the fatigue part. Last time I had an '03 cab up in the air I vaguely recall two harness connections that needed disconnected somewhere in the middle of the cab area by the driver side.

Yep, toward the rear of the cab and I did miss that one untill the cab was up about 10" and it was being pulled upon. I disconnected them before I broke them. There sere 3 things i found that i failed to disconnect as I was lifting it but lucky, nothing was broken. I still have this feeling of procrastination about me for the rest of the job...
