You have to first drain the transfer case. Then take the electrical connectors off the transfer case and remove the driveshafts. Support the transmission and disconnect the transmission rear mount. Then take the (6 I believe) bolts loose that hold the transfer case to the transmission out. Then you have to slide the transfer case towards the rear and get it clear of the transmission output shaft. The transmission case is not too heavy, but it's not light either. You will have to work it out between the crossmember and the transmission. Reverse the steps to install it.

Don't have any kids or your elders around, they may see a different side of you. It's not too fun of a job.
