Has anyone dropped the engine, tranny and cross member in one piece? It looks like it should, but the service manual I ordered doesn't show anything about pulling the engine. I am pulling it in the next 2 weeks and ANY help would be appreciated!
Thanks!

Can't help with an answer, but really curious I suppose- what's up - care to share? Are you out of warranty with a serious problem and no help from Jeep?

Maybe it's not a KL that he's working on...

If I could figure out how to lift the Jeep, then you can figure out for all of us to do the hellcat swap

It will drop in 1 piece. A bit hard to support, have a good stock of 2x4's handy.
Desoto, Have you done it? It looks like I can remove both knuckles, axles and Undo the mounts an wiring, then drop the entire assembly?

Close enough, you have a hand full there, giving nothing but good vibes your rebuild goes well.
Going to be easier than it looks.....I found it's buddy for parts! The body I can handle, it dropping the motor that makes me nervous.

Well I have to say I think this is the first time I've seen a rebuild. Wish you the best of luck and I hope you keep details and pictures of the rebuild.

Good luck with your project, Mike. Just remember that any of those ground wires that are not clean and secure will cause dozens of fault codes and symptoms. Don't ask me how I know................
