If you make that top bolt the first one you take out , It works like magic. Support the trans/T-Case by jack and remove crossmember. Lower jack to the point the top bolt gets visible. After taking that one out. Jack the bitch up and support the engine , I use one of my hold down ratchet straps frame rail to frame rail under the pan , remove the rest. FjR68

That's good advice. You don't want all the pressure on the hardest bolt to get out. Learned that the hard way when I was young

  This is golden advice!  Wish I knew that tidbit 15 years ago when I did my engine swap on my YJ!

For reassembling I went to home depot with one of the big bolts at 3 and 9 o'clock, got some treaded rod the same size and used it as guides on each side to keep everything lined up for the install. The few ive done this way went together in seconds for the input shaft into the pilot bearing....
I have no idea what I'm doing... but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
