LS cam bearings with the motor in the truck?

Is it possible and how much fun are cam bearings to do with the motor installed in the truck? Motor is an 02 6.0, Iíve done rods and mains before on my back in a different car so I can only imagine the fun

You have to pull the motor or the trans...

You have to knock out the expansion plug at end of the cam and replace it.

To be honest dude, way more headache then it's worth. I spun a bearing and picked up a 6.0 LQ9 from an Escalade for $680 and just swapped the whole dam thing.

Disregard the post, I’m limping a high mileage motor for as long as I can. It had no oil pressure for the first 15sec of run time and you could tell from the noisy lifters. I stuck an oil pump and timing chain in it. When I had the front cover off I noticed a few cam lobes had pitting but nothing you could feel by hand. I said screw it and just stuck it back together.

I’ve got another high mileage 6.0 that I might tear down and put new bearings in at least as a backup motor.
