Best Way/Tools to Lift A Cab

What is the best way to safely lift my cab off my truck so I can clean up the firewall and belly and be able to paint. Last time i used 4 jackstands two landscaping timbers a column jack and a cheap floor jack. As you might imgiane there was lots of shifting and tilting and shot nerves. It was dropped once with no damage thankfully. I took about 4 hours and 3 people to manuever the cab and get the boards out from the cab/frame. I need somthing much quicker and safer. I also need CHEAP!!!

Well heres my idea, it involves a lift still, but if you can find somewhere that will let you use the lift for awhile. I plan on fabbing up some stands for the cab, at my shop we got a frame lift, so I plan on lifting the assembly up, sliding the stands underneath, then lowering the frames. Then roll the frame out from underneath, back a snowmobile trailer under it, and lower the cab onto that to get it out of there for the time being.
