Re: Need recommendations for new engine and shop install.
I pulled my motor and reinstalled. In between I took it to a machine shop to get it tanked and some work done that I couldn't do or didn't feel comfortable doing myself. Was the first time I ever pulled a motor and it went pretty easy including the reinstall. I bought a HF engine hoist and that makes it quite easy to get things in and out and aligned. I did pull my transmission and TC first, and reinstalled the engine with the those as well. Obviously, I've never pulled a 4.0, but guessing its pretty doable...maybe some of us can help you out. I can also loan out or sell my HF engine hoist if your interested...
