Default new 6.4 liter diesel good for consumer, bad for techs

the new super duty is going to come equiped with the new powerstroke 6.4 liter twin turbo diesel, this new setup will increase torque to 540 ft-lb, however for any techs out there this means to remove the motor you will have to remove thecab, you will no longer be able to remove it with a cherry picker

Cab lifts have been the 'prefered' method of engine removal for some time.. Including the 6.0, 7.3 and even the V10.. MUCH easier to lift the cab, then pull one/them out the front.. Less intrusive/damage to the truck, and easier on the tech..

Here's a 99/7.3 with the body lifted done a few weeks ago...

i know you can do it like that already, however many dealerships forbid doing it like that because if you haven't done it before you can cause a lot of problems like pinching a harness, i was yelled at the first time they saw me do it, and nothing went wrong.
