    Funny funny funny. Shawn, I'll take you up on that. My biggest issue I think will be gettin it up high enough to get it out. I'll get in touch with you when I'm ready to get it done. Where in Littleton are you, I'm over around Garrison and Ken Caryl.

    From my own experiences.....remove the front tires,so the truck sits lower,remove the hood(or the whole front clip!).Mike

    The biggest thing is your front bumper. If it's an aftermareket and sticks out too much, then you may have to take it off. I live close to Countly Line and Colorado.

    You dont have to take off the hood. I swapped my 400 for a 454 and left the hood on. If you get the hook real close to the manifold you can sneak it out. Its tight but it can be done.
