I didn't have to block my van up at all to slide the tranny out. Only had to tilt the the tailshaft up and it dragged right out. Van is at stock ride height, no side steps or anything.

For a tranny jack I used a small floor jack. Just dropped the stock steel pan first (necessary to drain it anyway) then drilled a hole through it up front and put a big washer and a bolt to fix it to the jack. Balanced great. dropped the tranny down then blocked the tranny up and removed the old steel pan/jack combo, put the old steel pan back on as a drag buffer, knocked out the blocks and dragged the sucker out. Of course I 'm not using the old pan (have a Summit deep aluminum replacement) so drilling a hole in it to mount to the jack didn't matter.
