    I am going to pull my transmission and transfer case out in order to replace my transmission. Has anybody pulled them out together, as one assembly? How did you do it? Any recommendations, as in the easiest way?

    By the way it is a TH350/203 combo.

    I took off my TH350 and NP208 off together by myself using only a floor jack and a stack of wood. I put the floor jack underneath the trannt pan with a peice of wood to spread the load and a a pile of wood under the t-case. Then you drop the tranny down a bit, take a peice out from under the t-case, and repeat. Its slow but it gets the job done. A good way to do it if you had a removable tranny tunnel would be to get an engine hoist in from above through the tunnel hole and put a strap around both. you have to remove the shifter, carpet and seats for this though. Best way would be on a lift with a tranny jack but we don't all have that as an option. Also, the 203 is a heavy pig.

    Been there, done that.

    The only reason to pull them together is if you don't plan on separating them. Since you're replacing the tranny, I would do it one at a time.

    I made my trans tunnel a bolt on one. I don't have a lift. I do have a floor jack with the transmission adapter.

    Throw the NP203 in the trash while you're at it.

    I am keeping my 203 for when I do the doubler.
