Yes, it is quite amazing how much a small thread in steel can lift. I work in heavy equipment so almost all components have lifting holes drilled and tapped for when the parts need to be removed or installed. I think a 3/8" crosby eye bolt is rated for almost a standard ton! Lifting rigging has a 5:1 safety factor built in(Canadian standard anyways)! :0

Does anyone know the thickness of the 1.5" frame rails where the door sills mount?

Also has anyone ever ditched their hood hinges, release and latches and gone with a Dzus fasteners? I am a big fan of the way they look and would simplify things quite a bit. Im not going to be running engine side covers on mine anyways so not like I have to keep anyone out haha.
