Anyone R&R their transmission?

I am going to replace my transmission this weekend. I MAY have access to a lift, if not a pit, and if for some strange reason I can't get on either (probably what will happen) I was contemplating doing it in the driveway. The only thing I am concerned about is the weight.... Anyone experienced lifting a 5r110w while on their back?

I think the stock Ford Torqshift 5R110 is just under 300lbs (wet weight) but 300-350lbs is same ballpark.

By moving the tranny into the bed of my truck I realized that even with help, the 5r110w is not a driveway job. I will have to get on a hoist.

i would think to get it out you could use a jack with a few ratchet straps to hold it on would work to get it down at least and then get a buddy to help with putting it on a table or whatever your planning on doing

I would think if you lowered it down and take the bell housing off that you could put it on a creeper and jack the rear end up on the truck and roll it out back by the rear wheels

Getting it out won't be the hard part. It's getting the new one in that I'm very hesitant about. I know SOMEONE has done this.

I don't know if Martin "Maintian" is still here but I remember pictures of him doing a trans in his driveway. I not sure if it was his or his friends truck. He was under the truck holding it somehow, quite funny. He mentioned it was heavy!
