Hi there. I am Cam.

To pull these out as an assembly, your best bet is to remove the front diff. IT have the 3 bolts on the drivers side and 2 nuts on the drivers side. There is the connector for the actuator and the vent hose. This is the only way I know of. Most times we remove the transmission then remove the engine. TO do it as a unit does mean you need to take some of these things off.
