How hard to pull a 4EAT without a trans jack/dolly?

Weighing swapping my trans vs having the pinion bearings fixed.

Getting it back up in there is more cumbersome when gravity it against you depending on tools/equipment/environment. Those jokers are awkward in that tiny space.
Engine lift with chain strung down to it through the engine bay helps control the awkward weight as they've mentioned already.
Get car high off the ground in order that:
A: room to get the transmission out, there's far less clearance once you start trying to get it out of the trans tunnel.
B: more room if you're using some kind of dolly or jack to move it. harbor freight sells those little dollies for like $8, those things are great.
You can generally fabricate something - strapping the transmission with ratchet straps onto boards...etc to control it somewhat.
i haven't tried out the trans jacks or adapters yet.
any tool rental places that might have one?

If I have to do one again I'll either save up the money or see if I can beg/borrow/steal one from someone for the job.

Those 4eat's sure aren't light, it was worse than my 727 torque flight w/new process transfer case as far as ease of swapping.

Put a manual trans in, about half the weight.
Tempting, but non-trivial with the H6.
