I go right about where the front diff drain is shown, part of why I use a 6" long 4x4 across the top of the jack pad, gives a little more clearance and is wood against the trans bottom.

And, as I stated before, if you leave the battery connected, be careful jacking the trans. Right about it being high enough is when the main starter power is close to the clutch master cylinder.

I'm really surprised that it wouldn't be standard practice to automatically disconnect the battery when doing a job like this. Why take a chance?

Between alarm issues, radio lock, etc, I usually pay attention and not have an issue.
Some DIY's say to disconnect the battery for a sensor replacement or spark plugs......really?

Just saying how this "could" be an issue, you decide......

True - could be an issue if you pay no attention to the battery cables or any other hose, wires, etc.

I never disconnected my battery for this and there was plenty of room to get the job done.

YAY finally getting to this.

removed the stock oil pan... man those rear bolts are a royal PITA.

One thing I noticed is that my 05's stock oil baffle is so much larger than the killer B... why is the killer b so much smaller than stock?

I was hoping that my stock oil pick assembly was cracked. It wasn't. Looks completely fine.actually. Going to be cleaning up the pan and remove all old gasket, New pickup tube looks so much nicer than stock though.

EDIT:
Also noted, stock oil baffle uses 6 bolts, the killer b oil pickup and baffle only use 4... safe to say don't screw in the two bolts into the old holes and just leave them completely out..?
