The transmission is around 2-250lbs I believe. Full engine is around 400lbs? A 1 ton should be sufficient. Disconnecting the trans issuin while it is still in the vehicle is quite a fair bit more difficult then when it's out. Theirs a couple bolts at the top of the bell housing that are really hard to get too. I do recommend picking up a Bentley Service Manual or Haynes manual (both available for PDF download from this site) as it will help you greatly in showing you what you need to remove or disconnect.

Don't listen to the other poster above, he's just a spammer who comes and posts useless nonsense that clutters the boards.
