Default New motor install

I'm installing a new 4.0 this week into my 99. I would like to here from you guys that have done this before, it's the exact same motor BTW. Such as things you wish you knew or difficulties you had. The help is greatly appreciated. I did search Google first.

Just replaced my motor and the only thing I'd say was a pita was the 2 upper trans bolts. Other then that the motor is really easy to swap. If you have any questions just let me know

Loosen/remove the 2 upper bolts FIRST.

Is there any easy why to get to them or do I have to drop the tcase bracket?

The only way I was able to get to them was to lower the motor and get my socket in there from the top. I believe harbor freight has it in a wrench and it might be easier with that
