Concolour - i used floor mats out of the zj i was working on to lay on, as for room under the vehicle, I am a thick guy and had lots of room to roll around. As for tools, all you need is a socket set for tranny cross member, and 6 bolts holding tranny to t case, hammer and punch for shift linkage, and 8mm wrench for front and rear drive shafts. dont worry about jack to hold tranny up once you remove tranny cross member, gived you more room to get at bolts up top of t case. also pick n pull drains the fluids, but there is always enough to try to cover you if you dont expect it, when you rock the t case off the tranny.

so finaly got intake manifold off today and it was full of coolant, removed the heads and half the gaskets were gone. Luckily I found a wicked NAPA 20 mins away with a wicked military discount (manufactures price as sales price) so i am only into the new gaskets about $200 vs $500. Also I found a Rust Check product that worked wonders on all the rusted exhaust manifold bolts, never seen a rust penetrant work so fast and good! Now that I got everything apart, time to start measuring cylinders and everything else to see what needs replacing or cleaning up...

So while I am waiting for intake manifold gasket to come in, I decided to drop my fuel tank skid plate. Thank god I did. The skid was holding years of mud and rocks. All the rocks were rubbing the gas tank and almost wore threw in spots. So tip to everyone, drop the skid every so often and clean it out to avoid a big nasty mess, and potential disaster!

to do a tcase swap you'll need to swap input gears anyways.
theres a thread on here showing you what you have to do. grab a pre 94 case and your sungears will match up. easiest way

Military OD green with a bit of black added to it (about 5:1). I used a polyeurithane paint, hard as rock. Tonnes of dents and no paint peel or crack.

595B Federal standard #34082 (Flat Dark Green)

Bring that number into any paint store who can mix it, and ask for a small can of #37030 Flat Black, then mix it to your liking. Dont forget it will dry darker than it looks in your mix can.
