Hi,yes it will be easier for you to remove the transfer case first.The weight is off center when you remove both at one time.You will have a hard time trying to realine the input shaft and clutch components when you reinstall,if you dont seperate the two.Dont forget to rate this answer.Thanks. Good Luck!!!

I have a 1989 nissan pathfinder, the clutch engages pretty low well leting the clutch up, it doesnt slip or anything just engages really quick. Would this mean i need a new clutch or.....?

try pumping the clutch pedal all the way down and all the way up about 20-30 times, then put into gear and try it. if it grabs higher you may have a slave cylinder problem/ hydraulic leak. in most cases when the clutch is worn out it will grab high, unfortunately not always. a lot of slave cylinders require removing the transmission to replace, if this is the case it would be a good idea to replace the clutch while it is apart.

I am wanting to install a transmission in a 1998 jeep wrangler se. 4.0 cyl 2.5 liter I will need to take out the old one first. I've never done it before and any help would be great

Instructions vary depending upon if its a stick or automatic transmission. Your best bet if you haven't ever done anything like that is to get yourself a chilton or haynes manual. Both have text and pictures to help with the job. With hanynes, you may need the transmission manual instead of the regular repair one if its an automatic...check the contents before you buy it.
When doing an automatic, it's advisable to remove the crank sensor from the bellhousing as often they get damaged accidentally when working in there. If you need to remove the flywheel, make sure you mark it's position so you can put it back exactly the same way it was installed.
Make sure you have a flat solid area to work on. Transmissions need to be supported so notheing get's damaged. To do that, you need a place where you can move a jack easily. If you need to work on dirt etc, buy a sheet of 5/8" plywood to put underneath.

Transfer case oil

The transfer case uses Nissan Type "D" or equivalent, or Dexron/Mercon III ATF, the newest Dexron is Dexron VI, u may use that alo, it is vastly superior to earlier Dexron.

You'll probably have to change the clutch plate on the flywheel. You'll have to get a floor jack, but a transmission jack is easier to remove the transmission. To remove the transmission you'll have to remove the tortion bars on both front wheels. Also, you'll have to remove the crossmember aft of the transfer case. You'll also have to remove the front and rear drive shafts. The manual says you should keep the transfer case from leaking oil out the back. but, you can just top it off after you're done. Be careful not to damage the seal seal for the rear drive shaft. Anyway, once you get the transmission and transfer case out (you'll have to remove the shift and transfer case levers), you should have enough space to remove the clutch plate from the flywheel on the engine. You should have an alignment tool to make sure the clutch plate is aligned with the crankshaft so you can put the transmission back on.
