T-Case Swap Advice

I am getting ready to swap out my T-case for a new/used one because I have been having so much trouble with mine for the past 2 years. I am going to be starting after work tomorrow and will be doing this by myself so I figure I should get all the pionters before I start to help make this go as smooth as possible. Other than using a jack to lift the case up and down what all do you guys recommend for making this as easy as possible for one guy to do?

make sure all the wiring and cables aka shifters if manual is disconnected..

I started dropping one before and got halfway down and saw things were still connected..can drain fluid if wanted..another set of hands is always great..all disconnected..lower down..good to go!

So I texted shane and he answered all my questions before I started and when I ran into a few problems/questions while doing it I shot him a few more texts. He always responded almost instantly with gread advice and probably saved me about 4 hours of work/research on here. I was able to swap the T-Cases by my self in about 4 hours of actual work thanks to Shane!
