A 2 1/2 to 3 ton jack under the front crossmember (behind the oil pan) with a 4x4 chunk of wood so you get 4" extra lift.

Then jack it up to max travel.

Place 2 appropriate height jack stands under frame rails (behind the curve).

Place jack under the tranny pan, raise slightly

remove flex disc and driveshaft

remove crossmember and mount bolts

remove jack

get a stout cardboard box and place 2 smaller boces inside

place them underneath the tranny pan

remove all bellhousig bolts

remove dipstick

remove tranny cooler lines

pry on bellhousing and push tranny back, it will fall on the boxes crumpling them, but will land softly.

pull put by tugging on cardboard
