I just did all three of mine two days ago.

Real simple, jack the car up a little bit so there's room- then block it.

2) Get some pieces of wood about the size of your oil pan, then jack up your engine a couple inches with the wood between the jack and the oil pan so you do not crunch it. Don't go too far or your radiator fan might hit your radiator.

3) I put a 18mm closed end wrench on the back part of the bolt and wedged it up against the exhaust manifold and it stayed there itself. Then I loosened the main nut with an 18mm socket and a breaker bar.

4) lift up the engine a little more and you can pull the bolt out.

5) Then there are two more bolts holding the mount to the engine, 18mm as well I believe-undo those. The 'nut' inside is welded to the mount so you don't need to hold anything inside. Then there is a third bolt holding the mount to the engine and this one is a *****. You will have to move the mount around and fit a wrench inside to hold the nut. Then stick an 18mm socket up behind it and loosen it, things get tricky fitting your hand around the bars and axle.

6) Take out the mount and to install is the exact reverse. I would highly recommend putting the bolt you took out last, in first on the new mount. Then lower engine as necessary to put the big bolt that you took out first in. Then do the other two bolts.

Snug 'er down real good and viola you are done.

If you have any more questions, let me know.

I did this about a week ago(finally) and I had no press to push the new mounts in....If anyone runs into that problem the best thing you can do is put some oil or grease in the Motor mount frames and use a 2x4 or two and your standard jeep OEM jack. Then find a solid beam on a house/building/parking garage and jack the new poly bushing into place b/t the 2x4s and beam...it takes time but since your other jack is being used to hold the motor up...you might need this and works like a charm
