Cab and body removal

I found this link on another website and though you'd find it interesting.

It shows the body being removed from a Ford van for engine work.

Let's hope this is never one of us.

Taking the body off the frame is not as bad as is looks. If you look under the E350 you will see that it is all set up for this. Disconnects at the e-brake cable, Central wiring harness disconnects etc. About 8 body to frame mounts, couple electrical connectors, steering colmn then off ya go. About 12 hours work round trip. I have not done an e350 but I have done a Escalde frame replacement. Still hope it's not my van but I do know a SMB owner that has had to have the body off to reseal the oil pan gasket. Good reason to buy the extended warranty.
