You need to drop the entire front frame section to remove the trans. After you drop this, it will be easy to remove the half shafts. I just pull them out of the trans and let them hang.

Big job for doing yourself. You need an engine support from above to prevent the engine from falling out. You need a trans jack to remove the trans
