Support your drivetran when you remove ths TC skid. Itīs easier to rech the bolts at the cat/muffler on that way.
Here are some pics when I removed my muffler in 2007.
I also needed to loosen the rear driveshaft because there was no other way to get the muffler and end pipe out of there.

|Jerry Bransford||Those four nuts are attached to the transmission mount and you must (!) remove them before dropping the skidplate. The top of the transmission mount is bolted to the transfer case (yeah I know but it's still called the transmission mount ) and the transfer case skidplate is attached to the bottom of the transmission mount. The tranny mount is primarily made from rubber so it can't support the weight of the t-case skidplate.|

|4Jeepn||Hm, not sure I never had to deal with a TJ muffler. Could you just cut it after the cat and then fit in a new juction there?|

|4Jeepn||Well you will need to support the tranny/t-case.. Jack stand will work for that. Btw why are you taking the skid off?|
