There shouldn't be any mounting bolts to remove as such. The struts should just pop off after removing a retaining clip.

there is also two bolts per side on the top part {black part} of the strut the new ones have illustrations on the package just did mine today took about 30 minutes and a 1/4 inch nut driver.

How do you remove tailgate struts from a 98 grand Cherokee?

Prop the liftgate up securely with a 2x4 to get easy access to the struts....the liftgate is HEAVY and will hurt you if it falls closed while you're doing the replacement. The struts are held on top and bottom with small clips at the pivot point. Just pull the clips out, remove the old struts and reverse to replace. 15 minute job and easy to do.
