    Good deal. That simplifies things. Adjust the straps/ chains to a slight nose high, then when the tub rises to the steering wheel, give the body a turn to clear the wheel.

    On mine I just pushed the jeep forward as I raised the bed off.

    That sounds like a good plan also.

    After removing trans/shifter covers and removing steering wheel, I enlisted the neighborhood kids to lift the tub while we rolled the chassis from underneath. Don't forget to disconnect the emergency brake lever return spring. It was connected to the tub instead of the frame on this one.
