    I finally got the twin stick set up the way I wanted and the 205 is now ready to take the place of the 203. Lets hear some tricks about getting the heavy bastards in and out 7" lift and 35's puts em a little high in the air :wink1:

    The 203 is the one that is a PITA to get out. 2 strong guys should be able to get it out safely. When I helped my buddy install his doubler we just set the 205 on my chest and I rolled under the truck on a creeper. I bench pressed it up and my buddy installed the bolts.

    If you don't care about the 203 you can always unbolt it, push it, and let gravity do its thing.

    What harley said is the exact way i did mine too lol. I unbolted the 203 and got in the cab, used a pry bar and just let it drop. And then when i went to install the 205 i had my brother benchpress it up and i bolted it up. :wink1:

    ive used hydraulic jack to put in a friend's np241, different animal i know, but i dunno if it was really any easier cuz u have to keep moving the jack around, and it had 6" and 35s and the jack wouldnt go high enough, so we built a lil thing of wood to put on the jack but it was still a pain lining everyhting up

    One word: ATV jack.

    Okay, that's two words.

    I used this thing, with some 2x2"s stacked on it ... thusly (see attached)

    I put my TH350 in by myself, easy ... then I did the 203/205 w/ Doubler ... not so easy. A certain amount of swearing went into it! Just a 205 would prolly be easier, certainly easier to balance on the jack.

    To remove/reinstall my 203, I removed the center hump, and lowered the tranny and tcase together using an engine hoist through the door and a chain down the hole to the trans assembly.
