Tell me its ok!!

So last night, my son and I went to remove the skid pâté that is under the tranny. When we took one side off I found that the tranny was resting on the skid plate!!! I quickly jacked that skid pâté back up and bolted it back......is something wrong with our jeep?? Justin

I would check your tranny mounts. The skid plate is supposed to protect your tranny not support it.

Was it resting on, or attached? Your transmission is attached to your skid plate and must be unbolted before you lower the skidplate. If it was resting metal on metal your trans mount bushings are shot or missing, an easy fix with new mount, otherwise unbolt it, support the tranny and drop the skid plate.

Your tranny actually should bolt to it. There is a center trans mount that has two nuts you have to loosen. Then also on the pas. side of the trans there is a torque stud mount. You have to loosen these and jack up the TC output and support the trans from there. After that go ahead and continue lowering the skid plate.

Your skidplate is the support for the tranny. There is a mount bolted to the trans and then to the skidplate. Put a jack with a block of wood on the oil pan and you can remove the plate. Do not jack up the engine, just support it. There is three bolts sticking out of the bottom of the plate, 2 are 5/8 and one is 9/16 (pretty sure) remove those bolts before you try to remove the plate. There's nothing wrong!

That was the first thing I noticed too.... Not too shabby, especially considering that I had no idea what to tell the OP. LOL
