My ARP studs are being installed today. THe cab is up the in the air!
It's actually a whole lot easier if you can do it that way.
If you don't have the big lift, you might be able to get it done with 4 heavy-duty floor jacks and some jack stands. I've heard about some other guys doing it that way. (you'll need some cribbing to get the support for bringing it up high enough)
You really need a little extra clearance to get the back studs installed and tightened properly.
The 245lbs is some serious torque!
The guy doing mine had the cab in the air in about an hour or so.
I helped in advance by disconnecting all the gages, back-up camera, aux tank pump wires, and alarm wiring. All the after-market stuff that would really slow the guy down.
The heads are heavy! It's a lot better to be able to get in there to remove them...
