i lifted the body from the front and rolled the body and crane back to get the drivetrain out from the shell and then lowered the body down and put some jack stands on the steering rack

im uploading a video to you tube right now lifting the shell up

right now i have a manual chain set up, but i want to swap that out for a electric hoist on the crane

i got the crane on sell from hf, paid $620 for it

Gantry crane sure makes it a lot easier - i agree with the idea of the electric hoist on the trolley. Just get one with the remote controls - wireless is even better!

i used a 20ft strap and lifted the shell from 4 points, and dropped the rear subframe out and then put the two pallets under the middle


i used 5/16 screws to put the wheels onto the pallet, all 4 wheels can turn, and i think they are 4 inch or 5 inch wheels from hf

im probably going to get the electric set up over the july 4th weekend, waiting for everything to go on sale

I have my home built gantry. It comes in handy!  Much better than a cherry picker that's for sure.

I know, I have alot of projects Hahahh

I wanted the rotisserie tool, but the guy gave me the van and the 3 engines,
So I took it


I think the van, ones I fix the floors in it, and other rust spots,

The van will go on the cj7 frame

4x4 mini van with a 5.3/4l60e should be awesome
