Engine Hoist Recommendation

Anyone got a recommendation for an engine hoist that can go high enough for a F150 4x4?

I'm also thinking of using it to pull off the short bed.

An A-frame or a gantry crane for a tall 4x4.

An engine high on a typical cherry picker gets tippy so be aware of the CG and be safe.

Otherwise, pull the dog house (front "clip") sheetmetal as a unit. Btw, drill the mating flanges with an 1/8-inch bit to index the parts and use the drill bit upon assembly so it all goes back together in the same place.
