    5" lift, 4.11 gears, tru-trac limited-slips, winch, bumbers... you know the rest.
    Sorry to say but it's a big job. The water pump is ran by the timing belt(which should be changed at the same time)also the cam shaft pulleys have to be removed as the water pump is behind the plate behind them... long story short it should really be done by a pro because you can bend valves on this engine if the timing isn't perfect.

    Is the Plate that blue lines on the picture? If so then you are going to have to take all the belts and stuff off to get to the water pump, it should not be that hard but everything looks easy on paper until you start doing it and then it becomes a job lol. At least that has been my expereince. Sorry its early and cant spell this morning. lol
