Make sure you have a healthy tranny jack...those ZF6's are heavy. Be careful of the cooler lines. Have someone handy to help you handle the pp in and out. Other than the fact that everything is way bigger than normal stuff, its pretty much like any other clutch replacement. Did mine a couple of months ago. Mine is 2wd though, maybe someone with 4wd will chime in and add anything that i may not know about...Rod

I agree a good trans jack and a second set of hands will help out a lot.

You can't go wrong with a South Bend. Let me know if I can answer any questions.
