Lifting transmission

Does any one know if it is possible to lift the transmission lifting from the center point of the transmission and both sides will lift?
I ask since lifting from the center point the drivers side comes up but the passengers side just sits there & that is where the axle is not that should matter. changing mounts, broken muffler hanger etc.

I'm pretty confused by your question, but I'll try to ask the appropriate questions to clarify-

Are you just trying to move the trans to swap out the mounts?
Do you still have the transfer case attached?
What exactly is this "center point" you are talking about?
Are you actually "lifting" i.e you've taken the trans tunnel/floor out, or are you "lifting" by jacking it from below?

Pix would really help someone answer this question better.

support the trans with a jack and remove the brackets bolted to the frame instead

That was my plan except the pass side was not lifting so as not to unbolt something that seems to still have a load on it for som reason.

Make sure you have removed all the bell housing bolts. Use your hand to feel all the way around if needed - sounds like you might not have gotten them all.

Then do what Doug suggests. If it's all unbolted, it should just start coming down with you as you lower the jack.

The first time I pulled mine it required some extra effort with the pry bar. Make sure you didnt forget to disconnect any wires above.

If you are just trying to replace mounts then I don't quite understand your question as they should unbolt from the frame quite easily. Do you have an impact, 3' prybar, big hammer, can jack and 2x4s to spread the frame for the crossmember?

Maybe I just don't know what you are trying to do. Can you be specific as to what you are doing?

Just trying to get transmission off mounts to change them no more.
The transfer case side does not seem to come up while the drivers side is up almost an inch.
Just enough to get load off the mounts.
Yes I could unbolt mounts but if one side is not lifting not sure how much weight will be
therewhen I pull bolts.

Still not following you. If you want to change the mounts, then put a jack under it and just lift until you have pressure - it doesn't need to lift. Then remove the 3 bolts that go through the frame, the 4 that go into the transmission (if you can't access them, do them after the bottom section of the mount is out) and the bottom mount nut. The mount will just fall out in 2 pieces. Replace the mount and repeat on the other side.

Thanks will try that when the mounts come in.

This all started when I found a broken muffler hanger that attaches to the drivers side transmission mount, the rubber of the mount was compressed enough that the top rear bolt could not line up properly to catch a thread & the thru bolt bottom nut rusted threads.
Other side is fine figured I would try to do both sides.

even if you took them out with no jack it is bolted to the motor and will drop some but it is not going to fall out or anything. You will be fine.

Ah, no. It will tilt a good bit and the fan will hit the shroud in front risking damage.

I was attempting to make a point.

Follow-up Post:

I guess I should also say that the first time I pulled mine, I was fighting it so bad that the jack slipped out from under it and no damage was done. It moves a whole lot easier after the first time.
