Absolutly! I made special casters for the body that are 2" higher than the frame. I unbolt the frame and simply roll the body back.

I've done it before although I did remove the lower valance. Much easier that way. It's pretty scary having the car that far up in the air.

I did this, but all front sheet metal was off. Iput a 2x4 on a floor jack under the body, unbolted the subframe and rolled the engine/trans/front end out.
