I did mine in less than that without help or a transmission jack. But I didnt touch the clutch and have pulled the transmission and transfer case a couple of times so I got it down now. I think it could actually be done in 3 hours if it HAD no be done and you had the right tools.

Well we got the rear main done today, that seal was so hard you could use it to break someone nose and it wouldn't budge. It was honestly kinda scary

Thanks, was tired of them getting cought on limbs in the woods. I just measured the lights to see how big the opening needed to be and cut out the slats in the grill with a cutting wheel, then welded in some angle iron and mounting tabs for the lights. Can't get pics to load, will try again later.

Installed my new Kenwood bluetooth receiver. Thankfully the PO had installed a Sony and the wires on the Sony were color coded like the Kenwood. I don't see how anyone wires one up to the factory wiring......anyway, I can talk on the phone now and still shift gears, if I can hear!

Finally got around to removing the anti-sway bar and the track bars on the axles. Also did a bit of trimming on the rubber fenders.
Man, I need more lift!
