How hard is it to drop the transmission and transfer case?
I need to do some framework. Thanks

Here is a pretty good video. It’s a 2wd grand cherokee but I think the process should be basically the same.

I’ve been researching this topic because a transmission swap will likely be in my Jeep’s future. I’m not far from 200k miles.

I just did it on my 2005. If you don’t have a lift, a harbor freight motorcycle lift makes the job a lot easier. Get all 4 wheels about 8 inches off the ground to give you room to work and the job takes about 4 hours. Getting the top transmission to engine bolts out is tough due to the limitations of not being able to get your hands on them easily. You’ll need several long extensions on your socket wrench. Everything else is easy
