Cool Off with the cab!

So does anybody know if the entire cab on the 2011 needs to be completely removed from the vehicle to remove the motor? As in a heavy line warranty repair or engine replacement? That's how it is with the 6.0 and 6.4. Once the cab comes off, the truck will never be the same IMO.

All work on the 6.0L can be done cab on. Some people prefer to lift cab, some don't.

Yes I was a ford tech for years. Not alot of diesel experience though. I specialized in brake, suspension, and differentials. So if you have any diff questions ask away! By the way, I'm sure 95% of diesel mechanics don't have the answer to my question cause it's such a new motor. I'm just saying. ;^)

the 6.7 is even more crowded than a 6.4 could imagine if that tells you anything.

You'd have to remove almost the entire engine to even get the cab off......

Most stuff is cab on with the 6.7. Just takes a little more time to get at most stuff.

My diesel tech told me that ford learned from the 6.0 and made almost everything on the 6.7 "easy" to work on with the cab on. This is what i was told.
