That was my thinking - it would be unstable to prop the motor if the back end was not secured.
So I’ll either set the crossmember back on and do them now, or wait till I get the trans back in.

Not sure where you will find the info, (u-tube) but you only need a 2 by 4 and a floor jack not sure which side you start with but you replace one side at a time. When I replaced my mounts I just loosened the rear tranny bolts but did not have to remove them.

Really a pretty easy job once you dive into it. If you are using brown dog mounts (or similar mounts) make sure once you tighten the bolt through the bushing, back it off about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. Others wise you will have excess vibes.

Been looking around on rockauto and because I couldn't find them doesn't mean they don't exist. I don't recall them at all when I pulled the WJ knuckles in the PnP JY.

Do the WJ grand's have front disk brake dust shields?

Can't seem to locate an OEM pair... I'm sourcing the last of the miscellaneous parts I need to complete the rebuild and steering overhaul. I can find the rear D44a's all day long, but not a single one for the front. Did the akebono style calipers prevent the use of one?!?

Thanks - yeah not too worried about the actual task, more worried about trying to do it with the trans pulled would leave no rear support, which could potentially result in an “oh s***” situation when the motor is supported only by one mount and one 2x4 on a jack. It will be easier and safer to do them with the trans still in and supported.

I don't think they do but will crawl under the Overland when I get home. Sad part is I've changed brakes on my WJ since 2002 and i don't remember that. I think the ole'timerz is setting in.

Source for vacuum elbows for manifold? Think I tried looking once but it was harder than I thought it would be to find the correct pieces.

Think a '99 is like an '00? I have 3 on the side. Never messed with the one closest to the firewall but have with the front 2. The one closest to the radiator in my Jeep. The nipple on the manifold is the same size as the plastic line. So just a piece of vacuum hose. The one in the middle is a different story. Nipple on the manifold is a different size then the plastic line. I found a Dorman part that is tight. Actually for a Ford. Going to have to look up the number if you are interested. Will get back to you.

Id focus on building my immune system then. But if thats out of reach, scissor door kits seem like they can be cobbled onto anything these days. I think ive seen remotely opened ones.

Ford uses the foot-sensing release on rear hatches for some models, i see no reason it couldn't be applied to side doors with some ingenuity and a few more moving parts. ACTUALLY: a google search shows that aftermarket kits are sold to be installed on all kinds of cars. Do it, and let us know how it works out.

I replaced my power steering pump - swapped pulley from the old one - and now I’ve got Vicious belt squeal.
Did I do something wrong?
Is it possible I pressed the pulley on too tight or not tight enough, and now i have pulley misalignment?

You can look across the pulley and visually check the alignment. It would be pretty obvious. The belt squeal is probably the belt not tight enough. When you push down on the belt it should only deflect about 1/2" .

it looks good while its spinning, no wobble.
Belt didnt squeak ever before.
This is the WJ 4.7, so its the automatic tensioner.
Well, i ordered a new belt anyway, so we'll see if that makes any difference.
