    My dad has a customer that has a Yota that is prob close to a foot over 44 Boggers and thats exactly what he had to do. I would have used the fork lift when I installed my eng. but I just popped the front clip off instead. It gave ma a good chance to repaint the inside of the eng compartment.

    BTW I am not exaggerating, this Yota is WAY too high. Now that I have a dig. camera I will snap off a few pics of it next time its at the shop.

    We have a 10,000lb overhead crane suspended 35 feet in our shop. We use it for pulling Light Armored Vehicle engines/trannie packs.

    Ever try an engine hoist with the tires and wheels taken off, just set the truck on blocks? I think it would have worked since I used a normal engine hoist to install my 350 with a 6" lift and my 35" tires still on the truck. maybe your truck is still liftet too much for even that to work. I know I over looked this option, so good thing I didnt have to resort to it, I probably would have torn the front off first, that would have been a bummer.

    if you have access to an over head crane you could use that, not every one does though. /forums/images/icons/frown.gif
