update: I removed MOST of the harness. I've haven't yet made access to disconnect the wire that goes behind right motor mount and the wires that goes back on the transmission. I may have to remove engine, but trying to avoid.I'm here William how are you sir?
DPF being manually cleaned seems pretty routine online with success no?
Thanks. Before lifting, (so the hitch does NOT hit the ground) i put the back tires up on basic ramps. Also, this allows the overall weight to pivot on the rear axle. Once I put the table under the truck and lined-up the bolts everything dropped out nice and even. Then (as seen in the pic) I bolted the "engine hoist leveler" actually to the body of the truck, via the air-suspension bolt mounting holes. From there, I used the Gantry crane to lift up the front of the truck just enough to roll out the engine. Also, the table i used from NorthernTool is the one with 2200 lb capacity. I've read the suspension, engine, and trans is approx 1900 lbs.I can't even imagine trying to do that job on a creeper. Nice work. I like your solution for the lift table mod. I'm going to copy it when I eventually have to pull my V10. Also, my engine compartment is nowhere near that clean.
