Im no car 'expert' but that trans mount is supposed to be one piece..... :dontknow:

anyhow, I got new mounts easy enough, I am wanting some brown dogs, but $$ is not there right now, to many other things to deal with first, damn jeeps....

so after all the mounts were in, I needed a torqu mounts still, or the new ones will jsut break anyhow... and we are going out tonight again... hmmm

gotta have something in my pile o shit that will workk..

so I took an old shackle bushing, or half of one, it fits very cnugly between the skid plat and the torque arm bracket on the trans...

so cool... now a bolt long enough, or short enough... now I need a small rubber bushing on top of the bracket, so I cut another old shackle bushing, and add a couple of washers, and a nut on the bottom, and I got me atorque arm...
