NOW YOU HAVE A THREADED STUD ON ONE END AND A SLICK SHOULDER ON THE OTHER
INSTALL THEM IN VARIOUS HOLES
SHOVE THE TRANNY ON
INSTALL THE ORIGINAL BOLTS IN THE OTHER HOLE (MAYBE NOT TIGHT YET)
REMOVE YOUR CJ MEDEVAC-O-MATIC SLICK ALIGNMENT STUDS (PLIERS MAY BE NECESSARY)

The transmission must be aligned correctly and flush with engine block before you attempt to tighten the bolts. Failure to do so can result in damages.
Is this a manual or automatic transmission?

Your message was very helpful to me I grab a couple of bolts and inches longer than the original bolts and the transmission fell into place, thanks for your help.
