not that much work... unbolt the old one, and bolt the new one in... they are a direct swap... do you have the Transfer case on the 2000 4x4 transmission? if not, then separating the old transfer from the old transmission is going take a little extra time, but all in all should be done doing the swap in 8 hours or less.
