There's not much too it, just support the tranny with a jack, unbolt the old mount and bolt in the new. You will also want to install new torque rod bushings as well.

I just did this a couple weeks ago. The previous owner of my Jeep rebuilt the transmission, but didn't attach it properly. Because I didn't know how the factory setup was suppose to be, I made my own. I'm guessing you have the T5 manual transmission and Dana300 Transfer Case. On the bottom of the T5, there are 2 sets of 3 holes that the transmission mount can bolt to. Using the back set of holes (the set of 3 towards the output side of the T5), you can lower the transmission slightly and decrease the drive shaft angle. I also cut down the Torsion Bar (i'm guessing that's what it's called) and using 2 bushings made a sort of torque dampening lever out of it. Check out the picture: <a href="http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/infedel7/vwp?.dir=/Jeep&.src=ph&.dnm=Transmission+Mount.jpg&.view=t&. done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/bc/infedel7/lst%3f%26.dir=/Jeep%26.src=ph%26.view=t" target="_blank">http://photos.yahoo.com/bc/infedel7/vwp?.dir=/Jeep&.src=ph&.dnm=Transmission+Mount.jpg&.view=t&. done=http%3a//photos.yahoo.com/bc/infedel7/lst%3f%26.dir=/Jeep%26.src=ph%26.view=t</a>
