Default Transmission support question

I pulled my motor yesterday and was wondering how much support the transmission needs when it's not bolted to the engine.

Right now it's got my 2.5 ton floor jack with a 4x4 holding it up and was wondering if putting the cross brace back in would be enough to properly support it so I can put it on the ground to shut my HOA up.

Just take a metal coat hanger slip it through the front top bolt hole of the trans and tie off against somewhere in the engine compartment.

that cross brace is plenty of support. the tail of the trans is still attached to the PPF?

Yeah, I just took all of the bellhousing/starter bolts out. I'll combine both of your recommendations and reinstall the support and wire tie it to something.

Thanks guys!
