Do I remove the 5spd transmission and transfercase as one unit or should they be removed seperatly? I am doing this in my back yard by my self.

Especially in your backyard, due to the extreme of the weight differential between the front of the transmission and the back where the transfer case is, I would strongly recommend starting by removing the transfer case. Then, you will be able to remove the transmission more safely.

Even doing this work in the shop, getting the entire transmission/transfer case assembly as bolted up to balance on a transmission jack is quite difficult.

Now, if you have ample methods of support, you technically could leave them together. I just feel like a little bit of time invested for safety purposes is worth while.

Good luck...and don't forget to replace your slave cylinder!
