Re: Dropping Oil Pan
Must be different on a YJ/4.0.
I've got a CJ-7 with a 4.2, and there is no possible way to get the pan off without removing the motor mount.
What it comes down too is there are a couple of bolts that are impossible to get too with the mount in place. If you could somehow get those bolts out, the pan itself would come off without a problem.
I've dropped the pan on my 258 twice to replace the rear main seal. Once to replace it initially, then again to replace the seal I screwed up. And I had to remove the motor mount both times.
