Here's the pictures.
This pic really shows how bad the sagging is. The rear end is really low.
Torque converter cover. Was covered in sludge and gunk until I cleaned it with water and WD-40.
Skid plates had to clean the one that protects the transfer case it was really dirty.
Cleaning all the bolts and nuts I've removed to help protect them and make install easy.
The oil pan looks great after cleaning out the small amount of sludge in the pan. The pump screen was completely clean and the crank case and shaft look great will take pics later, because I didn't today. I just need to make sure the pan is flat and not distorted.
Its so shiny used a little bit of oil to help clean it and make it look better.
I still need help getting the flywheel to converter bolts off, because even in park the flywheel spins and I can't get it off, which means I won't be able to move the tranny, therefore I'm SOL and can't replace the rear main.

So, thanks to some insight from @moogvo I now know how to keep the flywheel from spinning while removing the bolts. Tomorrow the last steps for removal will happen then its all about reassembly. Will have pics as I go tomorrow.

No, do you have to?

You might be able to budge the transmission a little but you will have to remove the rear driveshaft if your removing the transmission completely. If its not budging be sure you have all the bell housing bolts removed. Theres always a bolt hiding somewhere.

Ok, here's a semi full write up of today.
Started day with high spirits and tummy full of D&D same with my friend Brian who helped out.
Removed the converter to flywheel bolts no problem, yes I marked them.
Took pics and began soaking of second set of bolts in WD40 to clean them.
Tried to fix my jack but made it more broken so had Brian run to his house to get his.
Used his jack to support tranny as we removed the 6 engine to transmission bolts (there is six right?). One bolt took us 3 hours because we couldn't get on it. Had to go out and get a ratcheting box wrench.
Finally with all out tried to move tranny but notta. Moved jack up and down but didn't budge.
Got dark so had to get the truck back inside and put three bolts back on the tranny to keep it in place for the night.
Throughout this we took turns cleaning the skid plates and getting to eat and such.
Was a pain getting the upper bell housing bolts because had to remove the air intake and lay on the engine.
I'll post pics soon just need to download them.

These are just pics as I went a lot are just for showing the condition of the motor. Some are showing what was removed so i remember what to put back and where.
Oil pump screen super clean
These four pics two above two below show the dry rot on one of the A/c lines. I think theres metal under the rubber but still its really bad.
So many bolts so little time. And yes i do know where they all go just not as sure on where all the washers go.

More pics couldn't upload them all in one shot.
Is that one of the possible mounting points for a block heater this is on the pass side
Cross over pipe off
Not sure if you can see it but in the center is another place that I think is for mounting a block heater.
Clean skid plates and splash guard.
Still even more bolts but these's are for the oil pan, adapter and tranny
Gross bucket and rubbermate that were used for cleaning bolts and skid plates.
