    I really need help with this because this will be my first major repair on the truck DIY style. I'm also wondering if there is anyone nearby that may be able to help out or get me access to a lift. My main question is moving the tranny. How do I do it? Everything else seems straight forward except the tranny removal/moving part.

    I don't think that you actually have to remove the trans. You should be able to unbolt it and slide it back enough. Last time I did it I used a floor jack with a piece of wood across the top. I jacked it up so it was centered on the trans pan, then take the bolts out and roll it back a little (you will need help with this). I suggest that you go pick up a manual at a parts store so you have some guidance. From what I remember, you have to remove the bolts from the flywheel that hold the torque converter to the motor and all the bell housing bolts.

    Thanks @Pikey, I do have a manual for the truck its just very vague because it covers several models. I will try what u said, but do I need to remove bolts on the tranny mount to move the transmission back?

    Bought the oil pan gasket kit, rear main seal, oil, and filter.
    The pan gasket is fairly intense its over a 1/4 inch thick and doesn't need the RTV sealant. The pan kit came with filter to block adapter gaskets as well, some nifty pan holders, and some instructions.

    As always I got the Fram Tough Guard filter, but did not get the high mileage oil just the regular Pennzoil Synthetic.

    The oil and filter. The extra bottle is for emergencies/right now because I'm still leaking oil like a mother.

    Snap-on pan holders should make this a lot easier.
