My Jeep's been sorta acting up the last few months where the tranny would slip a bit if I was too hard on the gas. Three of my pals helped me out in this department. Jay and Justin were both under the truck for about 8 hours trying to yank the think in my driveway.
Let's just say there was a lot of cursing and hurling of wrenches and insults.
A few days after they got the tranny out, it was off to my pal Roy for a rebuild. He had the thing apart, cleaned and half-way reassembled in under three hours. It was like watching a surgeon at work, you had to have been there. The thing was covered in an inch of mud and you could barely find the bolts, but it was barely a hindrance for him.
Apparently, it's bad if these discs have metal exposed....it means their worn out.
He had the parts so cleaned, I thought it would be a shame to reinstall the tranny back onto my filthy truck.

These were just a few of the parts he removed from the transmission. There were like a thousand pieces all over the workbench and he had the order all in his head. I was getting a headache just thinking about what order they were supposed to be in.
