So i have a 4x4 ramcharger with 360 and im wondering if its easier to remove engine and and leave trans  and replace torque converter or take trans transfer case and axles out or what other ways there are. Also i should mention i have no lift only jack stands and jack but not transmission jack

For a torque converter, I'd rent a trans jack and drop the trans/tcase. Pulling the engine requires a cherry picker, removal of the hood and disconnecting lots of hoses, wires and other connections.

Don't change the TC if you don't have to.

why would you take the axles out , everything being equal its easier to lift the motor swap TC and drop motor back in , all you need is a tree or a rafter in the garage or (6) 2 x 10,s and build a Gantry

to be honest , IF dropping a drive shaft is something you don't wanna do ....  your biting off alot more changing a converter , no matter which way you go about it . Me ? I've pulled the motor and done it that way , dirt floor ...at the time .
