Fastest way to remove ax15? w/ or w/out t-case?

Hey everyone I'm removing my tranny this weekend cause a bearing went bad. What would be the quickest or easiest way to remove it. Should I unbolt it from the t-case and pull just the tranny or pull them both as one unit?

And is there anything special I have to do to remove the tranny? I already know about the e-12 bolts up top but is there anything else?

Pull the t-case and then pull the trans...it will be alot easier to handle

If your only changing the throw bearing you don't even need to remove the trans/tcase entirely from the jeep, just disconnect the shift linkage, remove shifter & Driveshafts, unbolt the skid & Transmission and slide it back on a jack.

im pretty sure its the input bearing so I will have to remove it entirely. Once I have all the bolts off the trans will it come off pretty easily? And about how much does it weigh?
