It's a pretty straight forward procedure. The bolts on the driver's side are quite a PITA but doable. I placed a piece of wood on a floor jack and positioned it under the oil pan. You can slowly apply pressure with the jack until you can just slide out the motor mount bolt and then remove the mount. Do one side at a time to keep everything aligned.

***Safety note!***

You'll be working in a confined area with your hands between the engine and the frame rail. Get a few scrap pieces of 2x4's or something and stuff them between the oil pan and the cross member after the engine is jacked up. This will save your hands in the event the jack slips or fails.

Awesome guys! Those are a given...I go about it by raising the engine with a 4 by 4 on top of a floor jack (Never use metal on metal). Wrench's must be used on driver's side and socket w/extensions on the passenger side.

Does anyone know if you need the rubber bushings that come with replacement mounts? I received 2 with my right (only installed and one loose for the other side upon installing middle bolt) and only 1 with my left.

Just thought I would start a reliable source of information to help keep Jeep's running and climbing, appreciate all the time and information made available.
