This should help someone! I might would have put it under transmission & rear end but hey, it would have been great to read through something like this when I did my transmission a few years back.

Yep I would’ve been a lost puppy under my truck. And for anyone who needs a good transmission stand harbor freight has them for 100 bux. And the torque converter tool is a must to save more time and hassle. I will also post it there thanks! 130 bux, two hours and I got my rear main seal replaced and no more leaks!
