Starter help

Need to replace my starter on my 05 LJ but can't seem to break loose the top bolt. The transmission being in the way doesn't help either. Anyone got a good way to get this bolt out? Thanks.

Add a piece of pipe to your wrench/ratchet. Will increase the torque you can apply to the bolt. Simple leverage in action. Longer the lever the less force it takes to equal a shorter one. And in reverse a longer lever allows more force applied to the pivot point (bolt) with less effort on your end.
