Lift cab to replace body mounts?

I am considering purchasing the Energy suspension body mounts for my 06. What is a safe and easy way to lift the cab enough to replace the mounts?

When I do them, I simply loosen all the cab mounts on one side enough that I can jack the cab up at least 1/4", then I completely remove the bolt at the mount I'm servicing.

Well I got my new body mounts from Energy suspension, now I just need to figure out how to jack up cab without tearing anything up. Any help?

If you put a chunk of 4x4 on a floor jack it "should" be good to put the jack anywhere underneath. If you have a bad floor I'd reconsider doing the mounts.Just remember to only do one side at a time and only jack up as high as you need. Good time to coat the cab mount bolts in anti seize incase you want to tear into it down the road as well or want to install nurf / step tubes. Watch your fingers.

Floor jack and 4x4's to support the cab. Don't raise it anymore than necessary and you should be good...
