[quote] Don't use PB Blaster? Why not? What's better? [\quote]
Personally I prefer Kroil, but don't know of any reason not to use PB.
[quote] Good advise about the trans jack - you can make an adapter from wood that bolts to your floor jack if needed. [\quote]
I've done the floor jack thing, going so far as to weld up a cradle that fits into the lift cup socket, but don't recommend it. A transmission jack has a screw to adjust the tilt, has casters to roll the assembly any direction, and has a handle short enough to manipulate under the Jeep. A Jeep transmission and transfer case is a big, heavy lump that's a danger to itself, the clutch and bellhousing, and the people under it. The risk is so much greater than the rental on a proper tool that it's not worth trying to jackleg something.
