I pulled mine with a backhoe. I rolled down the windows and put 2 4x4s through the windows. you will have to hook a rope or chain to something to the front of cab or it will tip forward.

Take off the plow (if equipped).

Take off the front bumper.

Take off the nose.

Take the seat out of the cab.

Unhook everything that is bolted to the cab including the wiring, steering wheel, and frame.

Roll the windows down in your doors. That way there is no broken glass.

Without a tractor taking one door off the cab you should be able to lift the cab up from the other side and watch it slide off the frame. With 2 doors off it is not that easy. With a tractor the idea above works well.

1997 3500 club cab 3.54 gears towing & camper pkg. Still stock with a built transmission at 120k. 4" exhaust, 4kgsk, and exhaust brake waiting for installation. 37337 upgrade. Still need ideas for improvements for hauling 15k fifth wheel.

Check out my build thread in my signature.. Just did mine a few months ago.. I didn't have a tractor or anything just good ol man power.. I took the doors off and gutted the interior and I also left the front clip on (no sense working harder then you have to) and just got 6 guys together and we rolled the old one off and then we put the new one on and I re assembled.. Start to finish from shut off to restart me and my buddy working on it took up 6 hours

If your truck is a Xcab. One 4x4 threw the Xcab windows. The other in the front edge of the door opening.

Do not try straps threw the door openings. The body will bend above the door opening.

Here is a few pics for anyone that wants to see. And in the future for anyone that reads this to learn how to do it. To pull the dash out of the inside. Pull the windshield. It makes life 100 times easer. All it takes is a razor knife to do it. Just cut the seal on the outside.

I used a screw driver to locate the dash screws then I just cut little circles out where the screws were.. But I'm also gonna be getting a new rubber so I didn't care that much.. But it made it a lot easier
