Do you have the ORII package on your JGC?
If so, did you do it with your GC up in ORII (or on a lift) and was removing the front protection plate a one man job for removal?
Front plates are simple one man job, just remove bolts. Factory plates are light and flexible, can hang down.
Did not use lift, could do job with out jacking up Jeep. Being big guy, I did use floor jack after removing front shield for more room. Middle frame bar located under front shield, good point for floor jack. You can also use floor jack on rear passenger side jack point, for better access to rear end.
Also transfer case plugs use pipe joint sealer, I used Teflon pipe tape.
