This is a pretty big job being AWD and has a lot of components. In my experaince from doing this particular R&R, and actually following the repair manual, the easiest way is to separate the transmission from the engine and just use a tranny jack to let the trans down, just like a regular front wheel drive car.

Just like a front wheel drive car, you will need a brace up top to support the engine though.

Please let me know if you have any other questions or need anymore info!

Thank you!
