    Cab lifting device

    I built my cab lifter out of some 2x8ís. It is designed to lift my cab by the upper part of the door jam. The furring strips were added to spread the weight over the entire door jam. I mount it on top of my engine picker. I added some plywood to the underside where it mounts to the engine picker move the lifter higher. This allows me to pull my cab by myself.
