How much would yall say the NV4500 5 speed transmission and transfer case weigh with and without fluids?

Gonna do the clutch this weekend and i wanna make sure i have a trans jack strong enough to not have to worry about it not being able to get it up.

id prefer to not drain the trans and trans case if i dont have to as im out a job and money is tight right now.

guess the better question is does it weigh under 800 lbs ?

I'm not a transmission tech but I'd bet a large sum that gearbox is half that or less.:thumbsup:

well its less than 800 even full of oil. LOL, cheap harbor freight trans jack picks it up and moves it around just fine.

the tranny weights like 300 pounds tops. . . and the t case weights like 120. . . i picked up the t case and my buddy bolted it on. And we both took the tranny on and off the jack by ourselfs.

If it is the about $139 model it will be just fine, that is the one I bought and pulled the trans and transfer case as one. Sure made putting back together a snap.
