You could go by a book of you can get a alldata subscription for your truck for 20 bucks a year through autozone.com.
It is pretty straight forward though remobe the starter, un hook all lines, eletrical, shift linkage, drain fluid there may be a plug in the tranny pan if not you got to loosen the pan to drain. Once the fluid is drained pull the drive shaft remove the dust shield on the bottom if tranny remove the torque converter bolts, support the tranny remove all bellhousing bolts, then remove the x member and it is ready to pull out. Installation is just the reverse of removal.
While you have the tranny out you should check the condition of the ring gear on the flywheel.
If you pull the tourque converter off the tranny make sure you reinstall properly or you can damage the oil pump in the tranny.
