Intake and exhaust installation.

I am replacing the head on my 2000 Grand Cherokee 4.0. Any tips or tricks on installing the intake and the exhaust manifolds.

Assemble the entire head with the intake and exhaust manifold on the bench, then drop it on as a unit. Otherwise its a major PITA to get to all the bolts to torque them. You'll need another hand or a crane to put it on. Also taking off the hood helps but isn't necessary.

That not going to work. I am doing it myself. And don't have a crane.

I could also use some advice. I'm having a hell of a time getting my torque wrench at the bolts along the top of the head. The bolts underneath are no problem. There isnt enough room to get the socket up to the damn bolts because the intake manifold is in the damn way! What have you other guys done to get the top row of intake bolts torqued down?!?

By the way, don't take the hood off, that's silly. I just unclipped the hood supports and leaned it back against the windshield and put a towel in between to protect the glass. More than enough room now!
