How do you remove the whole shifter from manual transmission on a 1995 jeep wrangler?

Remove the access plate on the floor to expose the trans. disconnect the transfer case shifter as 2 of it's bolts are shared with the shifter on the trans. The bracket is held on to the 2 left hand shifter bolts and will have nuts on the top to remove, it is not possible to just move it out of the way without removing the other 2 bracket bolts further down on the trans. Then remove the 4 retaining bolts on the top of the shifter and pull it out.
