I wish I could find the post that Ross made about lifting the body. He used some sort of beam (wood or metal, can't remember) between the two legs on each side of the lift. Essentially the beam was sized to fit under the outer edge of the body between the front wheel and rear wheel. One beam for each side. The front leg of the lift held the front of the beam and rear leg held the rear of the beam. He took the body bolts out, then just used the lift to raise the body up. Looked like a piece of cake.

Stuff done by people who know what they're doing always looks easy. It's the Learning Curve that you cannot see that isn't so much.

If you're not having fun, maybe it's your own damned fault.

Just read this post. If the motor/trans is 1000lbs, the chassis has to be more than 200lbs based on the estimate posted. The rear end alone is 200lbs+ easily....
Just my opinion....
