Have done front wheel pulls a lot out the bottom of vehicle, but without a lift, not gonna happen for ya. Pop harness, mounts and hood, axles out of trans and pull from the right side of vehicle will be best bet. With lift, mounts, harness, axles, support from top and remove cradle assembly, motor and trans will stay on floor and then just lift body!
