Default Flexplate/flywheel replacement

Ok, so after looking at scores and scores of links, posts, tips and advice. I feel both confident and scared to tackle my issue with 2001 jeep cherokee
***** my issue is i need to replace my flexplate/flywheel****i am good at figuring things out when it comes to working on cars, just never had to remove a transmission before, lucky me! When i get to the point when i do this, is there anything i need to know? Any amature mistakes to avoid? Should i go ahead and replace the whole clutch? Any tips or knowledge you can share would be greatly appreciated!!

Welcome aboard. Couple of things: SAFETY FIRST, take your time and make sure everything is disconnected, put the Jeep on jack stands. Use a transmission jack. Have someone with you, it's no fun laying under a vehicle curled up in the transmission tunnel area for a couple of hours until your father comes home and hears you and lifts the fallen Camero off after laughing for 15 minutes. Use a torque wrench.

It's really a straightforward remove and replace project well in the capability of a beginning mechanic. The real issue is safety, you're moving a couple hundred pounds around under a 3500 pound vehicle.

X2 ....safety, safety, safety. My dad an experienced mechanic had a tranny slip off the jack (regular floor jack)few years ago and severed his tendons in his wrist. If my brother would not have been home he probably would have bled out under the truck and wouldn't still be with us today.... I've personally have had 2 floor jacks blow out on me while lifting the Jeep (a 3.5 ton and 4 ton craftsman professional )
