Unfortunately the Jeeps use the skid plate as the cross member so you can't just drop it out of the way. They do make weld in cross member kits that you can add, but it's not that way from the factory.
Not supporting the trans can hurt the motor mounts so stick a jack stand under there! Good luck fixing the noise.
