Driveshafts, TC skid plate, speedo connector, reverse light switch, shifter (trans and TC) clutch slave cylinder(CSC), all bellhousing bolts all removed.Then strong arms or help by friend or trans jack, and wiggle the trans until it frees itself and pull straight back until the trans is separated from the eng. ( put a support on the oil pan so it doesn't break anything). Once trans is removed you can start loosening the pressure plate mounting bolts, then it all comes off the flywheel. Do steps in reverse for installation.

I found its easyer to do it with the skid plate on. Its easyer to move it around and grab onto. Iv done it both ways but just my opinion.

Watch some YouTube videos. The process is basically the same for all vehicles.

Unless you are really strong rent or buy a trans jack. Look at Harbor Freight $85 and I use it all kinds of things.
