Trans Removal

can it be done without a lift or is it not worth all the extra work, and just take it to the shop?

i found it was easier to do without the lift, cause the top two bolts and the bolt for the dipstick are a pain.. i've done this three times alone, and once with a friend...its a messy job...after a while you get good at it...

I haven't pulled a trans on a 4X4 before so any pointers would be great!

Are you going to take your transfer case off? or leave them attached until you take the trans out?

I've seen people leave the transfer in tact with the tranny...the tranny is heavy and awkward enough...i think it would be easier to seperate the transfercase from the tranny right away...
