I no expert on Chevy's but I dont think the tranny has to come out with it, you will need to drop the rear driveshaft and probably the front too, disconnect the t-case shifter and any wiring harness's. It should unbolt from the tranny. And there is probably a t-case crossmember, that may have to come out too.

Marc's right. The transmission does NOT have to come out. Even if its bolted directly to it, it will unbolt from the transmission. BOTH driveshafts will have to be removed. Make sure you drain the thing out before removing the driveshafts. Make sure you support the transmission with a jack or a block of wood because when you unbolt/remove the transfercase (if its mounted to a crossmember) the tranny will snap up against the underside of the truck. Make sure you remove any wires attached to it, and the linkage (if it isn't a pushbutton in which case it'll have a wire loom attached).

if you are evn familiar with hand tools it shouldnt take you any more than 3 hours to remove and replace.

do it a few times and it becomes faster.

my best time to date is 45 minutes while doing it on my back.
