  • Transmission mount

    The transmission mount that I had on my T18 was 1 3/4" tall. I just installed my T5 WC and 4:1 D300 (pics and write up are coming), so Im gona finish up the flat skid, it seems alot easier with the T5! I could use the 1 3/4" tall mount, but I was wondering if there are any stock CJ mounts that are maybe around 1" tall???? There are no dimmensions on Advance auto's or 4wd hardware's web sites. That would allow about 1/8" more clearance between the water pump pulley and electric fan, and every little bit helps!

    The other thought that I had was this... I have a stick of body mounting rubber laying around somewhere. I was thinking about cutting a 3/4" - 1" piece of that, then just running a bolt from the cross member through the rubber mount and bolting it to the transmission. I would make up some big washers so there is even compression of the rubber mount, and lock nuts so I dont have to crunch the rubber too much either. I think this will work out fine, Im just looking for opinions or other options.

    Thoughts ideas?

    why don't you cut the 1 3/4 mount down to 1 inch...or you could buy the T5 mount and cut it down

      Because If I cut them I would be cutting through he treads for the studs that mount to the cross member. Good thought though.

        Will this be a safe modification? I wonder if it's gonna hold well and run well with the tranny hope it works well safely too

          It's still working 3 years later.... not including reverse, but the mount works great

            wow, old thread. did you use the body mounting rubber? oh, and it sucks your reverse is still out. at least its easier to roll around grabbing onto a 35 inch tire.

              yep, I did use the body mounting rubber for a while... It wore out quick, and squished out. I had to keep an eye on the trans mounting bolts because of this and tighten them up once and a while. I switched to hockey pucks last march, but now that Im swapping an AX15 I'm going to build a new cross member that is separate from the skid plate.
