About to pull my tranny/t-case ?

A few questions if ya don't mind

Do I need to brace the engine, or will the engine mounts keep it from falling backwards with the tranny removed?

Will that harborfreight scissor jack get the job done?

Or, will a standard floor jack with tranny adapter be too tall if I have 4' lift and 33' tires?

I'd like to get it out from under the jeep without having to push it off the jack first.

Just pulled mine last week. No need to brace engine, just the tranny. The $80 HF tranny jack was sold out, so I ended up getting the $140 800lb model. It made for an easy pull/install with the ability to adjust the angle of the transmission. Just make sure you get an E12 socket for the two bolts on top of the bell housing.

Thanks for that E12 notice, picked up a whole set while I bought that $140 lift. Not overly impressed with the lift (lots of slop), but it made it so I could use my other floorjack to keep some of the pressure off the engine mounts.

Those two bolts took longer than the rest of the removal combined. My 3/8" impact wouldn't bust them loose, And my 1/2" impact had taken a crap months earlier. I had to rig my socket extensions to reach the shifter hole and use a breaker through the floorboard hole. Was a serious beotch. Every time I would crawl underneath and get the socket on the bolt, it would fall off when I went topside to put the ratchet on, I know my neighbor a half mile away could hear me cursing.
