I have the 10 mechanical. Yes I am doing most of the work myself. A friend of mine has a shop with a big concret area. He also has about 20 years more truck/bus/ car experience than I do plus any special tools and equipment I don't have. If I had not worked on airplanes for 20 plus years the 2 years on trucks and teaching automotive for 6 I would not even considered it. I am glad I don't have a pesky customer want to know when it be done. The rearend goes back in tomorrow and the engine and tranny some time next week. This job definitely requires a fork lift. We raised the back about 18" for clearance. It slides back and down. There are no mounts on the transmission so you have to take it out as a unit.
Once my bank account recovers the next big job is the shocks.
