    Default Pulling 2001 xj engine any helpful hints?

    Like the title says getting ready to pull the engine out of my 2001 xj. Have read the Haynes Manuel and watched a couple YouTube videos. Wondering if the brain trust here has any other things to add.

    One thing I find helpful is getting the front as low as possible while unbolting everything up top. An easy way to do this is to flatten the tires, if you have air available of course. Then put it up on tall car stands to get underneath.

    The two top bolts on the bell housing are inverted torx replace with normal bolts. Swap is pretty straightforward.
