Yea im lookin for a cherry picker so i can get my dumb ass 3.5 out and put a new one in...but yea see the thing about a cherry picker is this i wont need it after im done so yea...how about someone lending me one for lets say...a cookie? I mean i can pay a rental fee but lets keep it reasonable cuz i am broke...

EDIT:

Any general rental store should have one. Try the yellow pages phone book.

I agree, on most unibody cars it is a lot easier to drop the motor and tranny together instead of lifting the motor out.

if its anything like the 3.3. Get a cherry picker. the only things you have to take off the car are the exaust manifolds. This way the starter stays in the car and everything else.
