been a while since i did one last, and it was in TJ, but anyways...

IIRC, the slave cylinder unbolted from the bellhousing, and just pulled out, still attached to the line. There's two external torx bolts on the top of the bellhousing, going into the engine block. I was able to get them out with about 3 or 4 feel of extensions, and letting the trans angle down after yanking the crossmember. Others drill holes in the trans tunnel from inside the Jeep for access. Apparently a 12mm 12point socket can be used if you don't have Torx sockets, but I say a torx socket set can be had for under $20, no point in possibly mangling those bolts for that little bit of money saved.

I also had a problem with getting the trans off the engine. Seemed the dowel pins corroded a bit. Ended up having to winch it off the engine, and it popped rather violently. Other than that, it was fairly straightforward. Oh yeah, I'd also recommend pulling the t-case seperate from the trans, especially if you don't have a trans jack. Yes, it's more work, but makes it a HELL of a lot easier to to balance the trans on the jack when you're putting it back in.
