Do I "have" to drop the transmission skidplate to change mount?
I've seen a couple how-to's on changing out the mount,but they both showed the skidplate/crossmember being dropped. I'm honestly afraid to try it,due to my frame being rusty in that area and worried about snapping bolts or breaking the nutserts. I'm wondering if I can just wiggle the mount out and another back in after I loosen the bolts for the mount.

It's doable, I can see an option...you could lift the whole body off the frame with a shop lift, then roll the frame out from under the body into a different bay. loosen the 4 bolts on the tranny mount, then use a hoist to remove the engine, tranny and t-case as one piece. then replace the tranny mount, and reassemble everything.

If your TC skid nutserts are that bad, you're going to have to address that issue sooner or later. I say go for it now. If you plan on them spinning and have spare parts and spare time ready to go, they will probably hold together indefinitely.
