How to R&R trans lines?

I am trying to replace the transmission lines on my '03. They're the ones that go from the transmission to the inline filter. I ended up cutting the old ones to get them out. Now I can't find a way to install the new ones. Any tips????

honestly I haven't figured it out either. The last set I did I had to unbolt the motor mounts from the cradle and jack the engine up in the air for enough room to slide the new ones in.

I use a bottle jack (like your spare jack) underneath the bellhousing using a short 4x4 piece of wood to help spread the load. Be careful and good luck.

Okay I'll have to try that. I'm guessing it shouldn't take to much lift to make some extra clearance. Trans lines are never fun, but I never had an expieriance this awful with them.

No, surprisingly the engine lifts quite easily with the spare bottle jack. Don't over do it, just try a little at a time until the lines can slide in.

On a related note I do oil pans the same way.

Oil pans too!!! I woulda never thought there'd be enough room to squeeze a pan out with the engine in the truck. Thanks for your help, I'm gonna give it another shot tomorrow.
