    I'm gonna have my transfer case rebuilt. It's cheaper if I take it off myself and run it up to the shop. Any of you experts have any advice for me. By the way 'bout how long will it take. Thanks for your support.
    Hey check out this attachment and see the decal I made for my back window.

    It will take anywhere between 30 mins to an hour. Its not hard, just disconnect speedo cable, take off shifter, remove driveshafts, put a jack underneath it and make sure jack will support it as tcases are very heavy and unstable. You might have to make a makeshift stand to put on the jack, I used a couple 2X4's and it worked great. Put the jack under the tcase and remove all the tcase to adapter bolts, then pull tcase towards back of vehicle until sleeve clears the adapter then lower it. Hope this helps ya

    It's not a tough job. I was able to handle mine without a jack, due to the aluminum case. But Waxer is right, a makeshift platform out of 2x4s could reduce the chances that you drop it. Remember to drain the oil first.

    My T-Case has some drops of oil hanging from it. I am taking it serious enough to maybe try something like this.( taking it in myself and not having to pay more than nessesary)

    What I mean is that when you go to lower the tcase down with the jack, there isn't a flat even surface to put the jack on. So you have to compensate with some 2X4's to somewhat create the flat surface. this help?
