Tie the body to the tree, put in D and step very hard on the gas pedal. The frame will come loose quickly.

I haven't on a TJ, but a yj can ruin your weekend if its rusty. Getcha a can or 3 of PB blaster, a BFH, a torch, and a couple of buddies and you should be just fine

Great tips. I know how to do it, just never have. So I was looking for tips when I do it. Thanks for the input.

Torch, PB Blaster, BFH. Check.

smartalecks aside, please post a photo diary of your project. I was kicking around the same idea for when I do my axle swap in May, but I think I'll be too cash and time strapped to do it this year...my frame's good for at least another year, anyway. But I'd still like to see what I'm in for.
