Yeah I know I should know where the search button is. but... the search terms are too vague to find what I want.

Is it easyer to just unbolt the subframe and lift the car off of it with a cherry picker or to take the hood off and wiggle it out the top?

i bet you can get it out from the top easy. since you don't have that transfer case in the back you'll have alot more room to work with. if you can do it with a gt4 you can do it with a gt

There is no subframe. Its not hard to take it out the top but if you have an easy way of lifting the car above the engine then out the bottom is much faster.
