the above estimate is about right, if things come off ok, the way these things hold salt on top of them tho can mean a mess. took my shop about 3 hrs to get my transfer case off, penetrating lube, time and patience are the only things that kept bolts from snappin.
Just got done doing mine, and went rather smoothly, while I was in there I went ahead and replaced all the bearings and seals so I won't have to ever touch it again (hopefully). The previous owner has had it replaced with OEM so this is the second time it has been worked on. Just follow the instructions MA give u, along with the reviews on their site and it will go fine. Find a pair of lock ring pliers that open up at least 2.5 inches. Thanks MA.
