I removed/installed my cylinder head by hand with the intake and exhaust manifolds attached. I'll have to say using a lift would be much safer!
Great idea -- that's what lifts are for. Why wreck your back? I use mine to install/remove my hardtops off mySWB Jeeps.
04WJ:4.0/3"+10mm/Superwinch=DD & Expedition Jeep.
yup, i did and my Jeep even had a 3in lift. iirc, the I6 head weight about 75-80lbs. it wasn't easy or fun, but i was able to R&R without a hoist or a helping hand
Better than screwing your back, or if you have a bad back already. Back injuries suck ***. (mine's been screwed since I was in my 20's)
The beatings will continue until attitudes improve!
