I was just curious if anyone has done this on here?.....its my dd and i cant screw it up or have it down to long.I have the 4l60e ready to drop in but would have to remove mine first..

i read you had to jack the body up to gain access to the top two mount bolts?

just curios if anyone can give me some pointers...ive done several trannies just never this cramped..

any help would be greatly appreciated.

easiest way i did one was to drop the crossmember and let the trans hang down to get to the bolts. OR you could jack the trans up as high as it'll go and get to them from the top with a ratcheting wrench. done them both ways but you shouldn't need to lift the body up at all.
t-case has to come out before you take the trans out. the torsion bar crossmember is in the way. i'm surprised you were able to get the tranny and t-case out of your fullsize as a whole. the crossmember should have been in the way for that too.
thanks long did it take u to remove?
didn't take me that long. took me 2 hours or so but i wasn't in a hurry
