Here is what I did;

You need tools, experience, knowledge and time. Make sure that any drive train part you remove goes back into the excact same place from where it came.

This repair was srtraight forward except the head is heavy , and the bolts on the intake/exhaust manifold are tough to get at because on the GC the 4.0 is tucked up under the firewall. On a TJ it is much easier.
