Two guys can't lift a 70lb trans? Skip the jack. I usually pull the interior shifter floor panel when I pull a trans, and it's easy for one guy to pull up on a strap under the trans, while the lower guy aims and shoots.

Get the jack - I have the same one and its paid for itself many times over
Much safer than wrestling with it

maybe if i was a little bigger!
im a little guy!.. im only about 120 but i might try and wrestle it out first and if i have issues ill let my slightly larger friend do the heavy lifting, or let him do it in the first place The parts are ordered and inbound so im ready for them to get here. now to get all the tools to my grandpas house and somehow get the jeep off his street and in his garage? will it hurt anything to start it in gear(1st) and take it right into the garage??

Nope, I've done it that way a few times. Long as you have some way of shutting it off and hitting the brakes.

I just yanked the trans out of my 04 Rubicon today, no tranny jack so I just pulled it back and "benched" it down to my chest. Not heavy at all. I will use a floor jack though that I welded a cradle for when I put it back in. It's just hard to get it all lined up and stab it in when you're doing a prolonged isometric press...Good luck on the rest of the job.

Am I missing something or what? I have it on a trans jack the engine supported all the bolts out. And it wont come off. Its not hitting the trans tunnel nothing is in the way of it moveing but it wont budge. The little guide pinns are out but cant get it to move now.. :/
Btw to my surprise the top 2 bell housing bolts were already converted to hex

Shifter linkages out? Trans and T-case? drive shafts out? speedo cable, 4x4 vaccum lines and vent tubes loose, Starter out? Oh a very important one. Are you supporting the engine? If your not theres a chance it could be dipping towards the back and bidning on the pilot bearing.

Sorry for not updateing sooner,
I got everything that could be in the way out of the way before I started. I even moved the exhoust just in case lol.
Anyway right after I posted that last post I tryed one more time and got it out. It seems a clutch has been done before.
It had a worn down sachs clutch disc. So im glad I planned on reolaceing it.
Now im waiting for brown to bring my parts to put it all back together.

Try this, you gotta remove the pilot bearing first. Or pilot bushing, depending on which one you find you have after tear-down.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/p...-101-a-513039/

Then for the install: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f12/p...lation-513450/

I always lube the pilot OD and the hole it goes into, then tap it into a good square start position carefully, then put a socket over it and tap it in with the socket as a driver and a smallish ball-pean hammer. Start it square, numbers out. Read the links carefully and good luck. All of this stuff works, at least for me, I just did yet another clutch job this past weekend.

Oh duh. I just noticed you have a 4 cylinder--on the 4 cylinder, the pilot bearing is in the flywheel itself. Real easy to get to and can do it on the bench instead of laying under the Jeep. The 6 cylinder/4.0 has its pilot bearing in the back of the crank.
FSM recommends using new flywheel bolts. To be honest, I have actually never done this, but I do put threadlocker blue on them, also on the pressure plate to flywheel bolts, but the rest of the stuff I antiseize. Sorry to see you're dealing with an internal slave, those are a PITA and not recognized to be real reliable.
