Do I have to take the sub frame all the way down or out? Do the radiator have to come out? Both axle or one, how much time do it take to do the job?

If you are pulling the engine and transmission together, I would do it through the top. Yes, both axles need pulled, and I would recommend removing the radiator.

Flat rate time on removing and replacing a transmission is around 8 hours.

Do you think pulling it out the top is faster than from the bottom? Will I have to take less stuff a lose if I do the engine and trans together?

Both ways is a lot of work. I hate trying to drop them through the bottom. I always feel it is more work and you end up working from under the vehicle more.
