    I am pulling the engine out of the 75 4x4 this weekend, what is the best way to do this. Pull the engine and trans together or pull the engine seperate. I have not done this in a 4X4 so not sure. The truck will be sitting without an engine for a short time so do I need to support the trans or tc until I re-install?

    Thanks for the help, Kerwin

    if you are pulling just the engine, then just ull the engine. its more trouble puttingthem back in together. i normallay have a jack under the tranny pan to keep it from falling to far

    Might to easier to pull both since you can leave the t-case on it's mount. I would take off the front clip first...makes it much easier, and it doesn't take that long...

    If you leave the trans in the truck you need to support it. If it will be a while you might want to rig a brace for the front of the trans. I cut a piece of wood and set it across the frame rails then drilled a couple of holes in it to match the trans case. It does a good job of holding the trans up and I can push the truck around if I need the space.
