Ok guy's next question

to replace the motor and transmission mounts.....is it as simple place floor jack under engine and unbolting the three mounts and jacking the engine up high enough to pull them out and replace all three (motor and transmission) then lower and re-secure?

Do motor mounts separatley, much safer/easier. Leave tranny mount alone, jack motor as needed to do motor mounts, then take crossmember off (supporting rear of tcase, I use wood stacked up and a bottle jack on top) to do tranny mount.

Just watch pinching/hitting/pulling/breaking things as you jack the motor. I did mine as a part of my 4.0 swap, so I haven't tried to wrangle it all when in place.
