    the only advise i can give you is to have some friends help you put it back in if you dont have a lift or somthing...also your np208 is a slip yoke so it is easier to undo the u-joint at the pinion and just slide the whole driveshaft out rather than trying to take out any of the u-joints...just watch out for the fluid in the t-case and make sure you fill that sucker back up when you put it back in (may be a good time to change it anyway) and be careful the the torque converter doesnt fall out at you when you are lifting the tranny back un into the truck....make sure you put some fluid in the TC before you put it on the tranny...and like i said have some friends help you especially if your truck is lifted at all...hope this helps...any other questions just ask and i will try to help the best i can

    dont forget to support the back of the engine. When you pull the tranny the engine will tilt back and the distributor will hit the firewall. especially if you have wore out motor mounts.:wink1:

    I just pulled mine sunday, have some support when you take it out, because the tranny is heavy. I put a jack under mine, helps alot. then you can slide it back, and then lower it.
    The transfer case you can easily do by yourself but the tranny is too heavy.
    PS, dont forget to remove all the cables, wires and shift mechanisms. ;)
