 Personally, I think you would be creating more work for yourself than 
needed. I have had my cab on and off at least a dozen times, using most all of 
methods mentioned by the list. Most of the time, it was the beer and buddies 
 These cabs are pretty strong, and don't have a lot of flex to them. I have 
had it jacked up in all different ways and not "sprung" it yet. To do any floor 
work, to the under side, I would just put it on the floor of your shop, and 
with some help, carefully tilt it back on the back of the cab. You will have to 
block it up, so you don't crush the body panels in the back, and so it won't 
fall on you.
I would think that working upside down, and around the frame, would be a big 
hassle. Again, just my opinion....
