its real simple. use a wrench and unhook from the tranny. then get a fuel/oil line disconnect tool to unhook from the cooler. only problem is you are gonna have to drop a cross member to get the lines in and out.

There is that old saying about if it isnt broke, dont fix it. However, it is is bothering you and you have the money, then do it.

I run all my electronics off my 136A alt. I know they make a stock 160A alt and sure I would like to have and I get even get it, but I have no issue with my current one. Now, if it ever dies on my I will replace it with a bigger one.

you dont need to drain the trans. the only thing that will leak is fluid from the lines, maybe a little from the cooler.
