i dont know what year your truck is, but i put a new tranny in my 89 balzer. i didnt need to pull the bell housing and tranny as a unit. If i remember right, i pulled the shifter off first, then transfer case, tranny crossmember, tranny, and then bell housing and clutch crap. that is the simplified version. also, the driveshafts need to come off. I had a hell of a time doing all this with only a little 1 1/2 ton jack. but no, they dont need to come off as a unit. Chris---
