Pulling 4.7 out of WJ requires special tool??
Looking to swap out existing engine in a 2002 Grand Cherokee Overland (misfire #6, wet plug, leaking freeze plug vs other leak) for another 4.7HO from another 2002 Grand Cherokee Overland that was wrecked at about 100K.
My mechanic sez that Jeep dealership claims that a "special tool" is required to pull the engine. Is this the case? If so, what are my options? Can one be rented, jury rigged or purchased used from somewhere?
Something about the engine needing to be maneuvered in the engine compartment when being pulled out.
Thanks in advance.
