Kurt, The best and easiest method is to find 3 buddies. 4 guys can lift and 
carry the cab fairly easy. 3 could do it, but it's better with 4 to keep it 
steady. While my doors were off, I did use the sling method, but used a 4' 
pipe to hook the sling on each end, and lift in the center. I only used it to 
lift the cab straight up, roll out the frame, and sit it straight down, 
(didn't try moving it that way, was too afraid of "swinging it around").
 One time, by myself, I used the floor jack, a bunch of wood blocking, and a 
couple of 8' 4X4's, to jack up the cab, and block it up, and roll out the 
frame. That method is to scary to even talk about.....

  Good Luck, and DON'T DROP IT!!!!!
