TJ Skid Plate/Transmission removal-Help!
I need to replace the rear cooling hose to the transmission. It's a 97 TJ 4.0. I tried removing the six BIG bolts on the skid plate and the whole transmission started to come down on me. I put a jack under the plate to support it. Is there a trick to getting that rear hose disconnected? I can barely see it. If the big skid plate was not there, my original idea, I could get to it. It looks like I can't remove it since the transmission is connected to it. I need some advice.
