I second that 4 guys can lift the body. I would say it is every bit of 500 lbs
depending on how stripped it is.
I would consider removing w your 500lb hoist as long as you take safety
precautions and lift slowly safely and stay out from under the load. I have
used a cherry picker / engine hoist before too and lifted with the seat belt
holes in the tunnel which are fairly close to center of gravity. You will want
a supporter on each end regardless to keep level and to steady and watch as you
lift. Ensure all bolts and all electrical are detached.
