    you might be able to get it out with the transmission, if you remove the radiator and maybe some of the grill assembly too, but definitly not with the tcase. its not too much work to disconnect the transmission.

    I had to take off the grill support and, because the front end is lightly wrecked so taking out the radiator and A/C condensor was in the game plan. I ended up dropping the t-case and transmission to get to the top bellhousing bolts then putting it backand getting the rest of the bolts.

    Thanks for the input

    Hi,

    I had to pull the 4.0 out by itself, without either the transmission or t-case attached. My Cherokee had so little clearence between the radiator and engine, so it was a tight fit.
