Thats my fear I guess is that she jumps in her crib for an hour every time she goes to sleep(naps and nite)how in gods name if I take it down to a toddler bed am I gonna get her to lay down to sleep? HELP!

As long as she can't climb out you can keep her in the crib. I moved my twins to toddler beds a month or two past 2 1/2. Maybe you could try adjusting her bedtime and nap routines to eliminate or lessen the jumping before you make the change. Maybe try having her run in circles for a few minutes or play red light/green light, and then wind down by reading a story and snuggling before putting her down. When you do make the change you might consider basically converting her whole room to a big crib by putting a gate on her door and making sure her room is as safe as possible. My oldest ended up sleeping in the floor quite a bit when I first moved her to a toddler bed, so I have to say that not actually being in the bed is ok if she eventually does fall asleep somewhere. GL!
