hello, I got a 2000 exterra, bad motor, so Im having to pull the motor out. Problem is, I don't see where to hook up the chains to pick it up, out of the engine compartment. Can someone with experience please tell me where i'm supposed to hook to the motor to pull it out, thanks.

go for any bolt that is 8mm or larger in diameter (should have a 12mm head on it) driver side head at the back there should be a decent slinger you can bolt too. for the front I went off my AC compressor mounting bracket (if so equipped) other side was power steering pump bracket and passenger side far back went off an exhaust stud.. 4 ratchet straps and it works fine.
or you can also just wrap a comealong chain or ratchet start around the exhaust manifold.

also you need to drop the diff, which is 6 bolts for the diff and 12 bolt for the driveshaft
