I wanted to get home as soon as I heard the squealing so I didn't get a chance to powerwash the underside so I was going inside to wash out mud chunks from my eyes every 3 minutes as well. There is a non running truck and a trailer in front of my garage as well so I was working in the dark which didn't help matters.

If I had a lift and well lit shop with tools near by it shouldn't take more than an hour or so. If you are planning on doing this in a driveway give yourself a weekend to be safe and have a buddy to help.

*i have pulled multiple transmissions and transfer cases in my driveway it is not ideal nor would I advise tackling this job if you haven't done it before.

Thanks I'll look into them for next time.
