Had to replace the rear main seal, but she's ready to go now!

Right now the ZJ is sitting in my driveway with a folding chair holding the hitch up waiting on a cutting tool to cut that bolt out of there. I pulled the rear bumper cover off and tried holding the nut on the other side but that thing is super stuck. The nut ended up rounding off. I still think I did a decent job time wise though. I spent about a half hours putting the other two skids on by myself. The rest of the time spent doesn't count...

Anyone have any tips for getting those things out? Also, how difficult is it to change the seal at the front of the cam? I noticed I have a leak from there yesterday when I was putting the front engine skid on.
Was thinking this the whole time...

Put her on CL for sale. Unfortunately she must go. But when I do get another ZJ it will be no less than a niner. She will be missed.

Need cash. Simple as that. Sad to see her go whenever she goes.
