Journey Generator Removal--Ever tried this?

I have an 04 Journey that does NOT have the slideout generator. There are maintenance items that cannot be done with it in place, specifically replacing the thermostat which is due every 4 years and I am still on the original one.

I've seen the posts where the front cap is removed and the generator is disengaged from all its connections/mountings and it is slid out on a transmission/floor jack.

I've been thinking of how to remove it w/o removing the front cap. It seems to me, one could place enough blocks under the jacks to come up to the bottom of the jacks, then raise the jacks to provide enough clearance to drop the genny down with the transmission jack.

Before I spend too much time overthinking this process, has anyone tried this before?

Hi doorguy I took mine out by blocking the front up about 16 inches under the jacks. Used a lift cart under gen to lower after removing bolts , elect, exh, and fuel lines. Lowered then pull out front. Took about 2 hr
