That's how I did it. (engine 1st) then the tranny. I put the truck on ramps, tilted the front of the engine up w/ a hoist. But I needed help lifting the tranny into position before sliding the TC on. No fire wall mods at all.

Yeah, I have AWD, and I replaced the 4L60E with 700R4 then swaped the transfer case. Removing the crossmember was a must.
Just use your cherry picker as a third motor mount, it will want to fwd. And once the tranny is on, support the tail housing.
