Use a floor jack or a helper to stab it in properly. You didn't mention whether it's an automatic or manual, which does make a bit of difference when it comes to installation.

not that hard just use a friend both lift it up and one holds it while the other bolts it up, that how me and my friend when we replaced the clutch in his 79 f150, and his trans. is cast iron, we never even bothered with the floor jack until we went to the heavy *** transfer case. i'm not sure which cross member it is but wither take it off or maybe find a way to work around it, there it is not very likely that you can do it your self, just call up a friend

Being it's a 92 , and you're in the Northeast , have the cab mounts rusted and let the cab settle lower than it should be on the frame ?
You may just have jack up the cab a little.
