Question 2001 F150 7700 Cab Removal

hey everyone, first post here,

I was looking for a site with alot of topics/threads on the 97-03 F150's and here I am.

I have been looking for any information on cab removal on these years and what all is involved. I have a 2001 F150 7700 XLT Supercab 4X4 shortbox that was on dual fuel, gas/CNG (Natural gas) The truck has 263,000 km's on it and have been plagued with a misfire on cylinder #5. Well turns out, I have a burnt exhaust valve. So rather than tear the engine out and rebuild it, I have bought a roll-over same year with 134,000 km's. What I plan on doing is switching the cab and the box onto this frame/chassis. The guy I bought it from said it isn't running, you know that dreaded 1260 theft code!!!!<---more about that some other time

Well I got past that and it runs mint. Put the truck on on stands and let it warm up and had it cruising at 120 km/h for about 5 minutes, no check engine light and no codes. It was a well looked after truck. I now have the box off and want to prep for cab removal.

So long story short, any info/help/websites would be greatly appreciated and only hope I can help others out here too

Thank you Maximus, I did have that link saved, lots of info there as well, Especially the note about not moving the steering wheel once it is separated from the steeringbox. Possible airbag detonation

I have a list of things to do before separating the cab like the

e-brake
throttle cable
air/cond to cab
heater lines
cab safety cables
ground straps
the torx 55 bolts (pre-soaking with WD40 as I am typing this)
I'll see if I can load a couple pics

box in the air waiting for tomorrow to pull the truck out and slide the trailer under it

and the body for the frame/chassis.

I figure waaaaaaay easier to just drop the body that to pull the engine/tranny transfer case and both diffs. Not that there is anything wrong with mine, it's just 263K as compared to 134 and change

If I read this correct, instead of rebuilding the engine you bought a rollover and your just swapping bodies?

Is the rollover a 7700 too?

ya, it's a 2001 7700 as well, same everything, year, and body style. I figure it will be way easier than to pull everything and just re use my original frame. My big hurdle will be lifting the cab. My garage is only a 7 foot ceiling so I will have to do this outside. oh well see how it goes

This what the truck looked like when it was delivered, I think it was rolled in the winter on snow cause there are no scratches on the paint, weird just dented up really bad and the roof is pushed in a bit. It was an insurance write off the only exterior part worth keeping was the rear bumper, it is MINT and the running boards/steps. The front bumper looked really good but the passenger side had a large minor dent.

There's no frame damage or anything messed up on the drivetrain? It'd scare me being a roll over. If it was checked out then I guess it's safe. I'd still be cautious.
