Can I do this My self? 350 4x4 trans

Hey folks I have a 97 350 4x4 with the manual trans. From what Iíve gathered I need to have the syncro 3-4 replaced. I want to pull the trans and have someone fix it for me. How heavy is that trans. Will that be too much for someone to do with mechanical abilities but no prior knowledge of 4x4ís or transmission. What other parts would I have to take off. Thanks so much any info would be awesome.

its not a terribly tough thing, but i would HIGHLY reccomend going to your local rental place and renting an actual floor trans jack. For ease on you, take the transfer case off while its still in the vehicle. from there, the upper passanger side bell housing bolt is the toughest thing.....other than that its just bolts and the crossmember......

You are one big MF if you can hold that tranny up while you unscrew the last few bolts. Get a jack for that baby.

I made a bracket to bolt the tranny to my tranny jack

where the cross member bolts on. That way you can take the tranny out with the T Case still attached. Way easy. I did it once in 7.5 minuets. But I'm not braging.
