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.
Support your transmission with a jack, and then you can remove the skid plate.

It looks like the transmission is connected to the skid plate with a motor mount type device. Will this just disassemble by itself or do I need to remove the four bolts that hold the mount to the skid plate?
Thanks. I was surprised when I released the 3 big bolts on the left and the transmission dropped. I noticed the motor mount/transmission mount. Guess i got a lot to do tomorrow evening. Is it acceptable to put a flexible rubber hose where the leak is in the transmission coolant line? Seems like it would be easier than replacing this hard to get at part.
