When I did mine, I had a floor jack under the trans so was able to have a friend push over while I got the other side attached. Do you have a stationary or floor jack?

Same thing happened to me yesterday. Make sure the 4 transmission bolts are loose. Lower the motor so the bracket attached to motor is a little lower than the motor mount attached to frame. You should then be able to shift your floor jack a little at a time until it is closer to being lined up. I attached a ratchet strap from my jack to my nerf bar to do this.
Fought for hours yesterday trying to get it lined up. Did the steps mentioned above this morning & had the motor mount bolts in within 15 minutes
You must have unbolted both motor mounts for that to shift like that. Do what racerboy6996 suggested. Make sure you do not remove those 4 t-case bolts , just loosen or you will be worst off than right now.
Its either your battery or starter, the noise you are describing sounds like a solenoid not getting enough juice or a starter burning up. Rip off the starter and pull the battery to have them both tested. An easy way to test the battery at home is to hook up a volt meter and watch for a significant drop when the ignition is turned on. This would be a situation where lights turn on, most everything functions as usual, but under a large load the battery fails.
The reason the engine shifted over a couple of inches, was because I jacked it up to high. After I figure out ( 3hrs later ) that it was to high. I lowered it back to were the mounts would line up and I was able to rock the engine back in place.
Thanks for all the help on this. I thought I was completely f**ked.
So I have another problem. Yesterday I took my Jeep on the highway since I got my rear main seal fixed and installed the MML + BL. Around 40 - 60mph i'm hearing a noise and it's going to a pattern ( hope that makes sense), the faster I go the faster the noise gets. When i remove my foot from the pedal, the noise stops. I can also feel the vibe in the pedal.
