Guess it depends how rusty your Jeep is. My hardware all came off with no problems.

Should I replace tranny fluid while I have the skid plate down? No idea when it was changed last. What fluid do you guys recommend. 5 speed manual.

If it hasn't been changed, probably a good idea. I use Redline MT-90 in my AX-15 and some of the older BMWs I service and it works great.

I put Lucas 75w-90 in my 5 speed. It shifts smoother than it did before. I haven’t tried the Red line
