    Is there anyone in the Colorado Springs area that could help me install a tranny & t-case in the near future? I'm hesitant to attmpt on my own. I beleive I have all necessaary tools, just lack the experience to do on my own. I'd be willing to by the beer/pizza for the deal or something else. Thanks in advance.

    Scope of Work: Remove current 700R4 and replace with new one, adapter plate, and t-case.

    Mark, bring it out here if you want, you've seen my little shop. I think we can handle it.... I even know of someone with a trailer that might be able to haul it out if necessary. LOL.

    Thanks John. I'd rather try to get it done here. Also, I need a class 3 hitch for my 1-ton p/u before I can tow anything anyway.

    If I actually put in the tranny & t-case, HarryH3 has first dibs on the old one. You can have it if he doesn't want it. As far as putitng in the other tranny/t-case, I'm in no hurry. I'm just not real motivated to install it. If I knew how to do it on my own, it'd be done with the recent nice weather.
