If the tranny housing is aluminum and the locating pins are steel they will corrode creating a bond.
It will come apart providing all bolts are removed and not easily!
When replacing tranny put antiseize on all aluminum and steel contact points to prevent future corrosion.
I hope this helps.

    You shouldnt have to but it might be wise to put some sort of support for safety

    If you question safety always take the time to get a jack stand or block of some kind

    Good Luck

How the trans& transfercase bolt to frame

Are you wanting to remove the transmission and transfer case? If so, I advise that you have a good place to work and preferably a transmission jack. While fairly familiar with them, I haven't removed a transmission from a 4-wheel drive Dodge Dakota, but know they're considered to be one of the more difficult ones to do. Have you done this sort of thing before? That said, I can give you instructions. The transmission doesn't actually bolt to the frame. It bolts to the engine bell-housing and there'll be a rubber mount at the rear which probably fastens it to the cross-member with 2 bolts. There are several small things which have to be disconnected/removed, like wiring, the speedometer cable, both drive-shafts, etc. Let me know if you want to remove the transfer case and transmission or just the transfer case.

Replace complete fuel line assembly in a Silverado z71 1500 4 whl. drive

Some of these drive shafts require removal of cross member to get them out. The fuel lines run up the back side of engine so removing the cross member will allow more room to gain access to the retaining hardware. jack up transmission and transfer case remove cross member lower down for access.

Transmission mount

Its bout the same for all rear wheel. Place a jack to support the transmission, remove the bolts from the mount and frame. If the tranny on a cross member then you should be able to remove the cross member by 4 bolts, then remove the mount from tranny and cross member.
