It's not that bad. Un-bolt the lower motor mount bolt on each side jack up the motor/tranny and stick a 1" block of wood between the frame rail and the motor mount to keep it up. Make sure you use a 1/4 ratchet with a swivel on the socket end and a extension. That will make getting the back bolts alot easier. I found it easier once you get the bolts out of the oil pan and drop it a little take off the pickup tube. Everything will come out a lot easier.
