Transmission Removal Question???

Not a mechanic but determined to figure this stuff out. When I unbolted the skid plate to get to the transmission I started lowering it with the jack stand and noticed the transmission was coming down with it. Is that supposed to happen or is the transmission supposed to be supported by something else as well? Trying to replace the clutch but like I said I'm not a mechanic so I'm going to take it slow and easy and TRY not to cost myself more money by trying to save myself money.

Yeah, that skid supports your trans, there's nothing else under the skid. You have to put jack stands in front and behind the skid before lowering it

NCJeepNC, this coming up weekend I will be replacing my clutch too. I am no mechanic either so any advice would be greatly appreciated. Did you get any direction from some where?

Just a Haynes manual and this forum. There was a You Tube video but it wasn't much help. I've really got stumped now though. I can't get the transmission out because the transfer case shift knob is just a little to tall. I removed the top half of it but it's still just a tiny bit to tall. Very frustrating but I will get it. I wish you luck on your project and hope it goes well. I also had to go to a local mechanic and borrow a 5/16 square driver socket to drain my transmission fluid. None of the stores had it available. Only place I found I could buy it was off a snap-on tools truck.
