youll see more pics to come its just a very basic set up that works very well and i plan to us ethe jeep for a bit of everything.NOW befor anything is said in 95% of these pics it is not the final product those pics will be seen at the end of this build also these pics have been taken over the last year as i only get a day or so a week to work on it

So in this next set of pics the mock up motor and np435 with np205 is in the whole and i mocked up the super duty hydro boost and started on the new gauge cluster that will house my new old gauges from my bronco








inside of the front frame rail gussests to stop the weak ass frame from bending back on itself and the out side has the same thing done

I am no fabricater but that motor mount looks like it has fail potential the way it is just sitting out there like that with no real support

Yeah, I would cap those motor mounts top and bottom and add a gusset or two from the tab back into the frame

I'm in the same boat as 4Lo... The bracket looks weak...

Maybe put a triangular gusset on the outside of each of the brackets flanges, and hooked to the frame of course... Should keep it from bending outwords and the motormount itself keeps it from bending inwards. Picture this 'U' is your bracket, inside the 'U' is your bolt but outside is where a gusset could potentially go... Then again, maybe it's fine and I'm wrong or like to overbuild things...

It's a cool build either way look forward to seeing it done

the motor mounts are about 10 times stronger then the frame you glued them to.

do you have a transfercase in there yet? your transmission is higher then mine and I placed mine up until I had almost no clearance between the tub. might be the added length of the blackbox putting the case in a less favourable location in my case

i'd cut them off and build complete new ones, and then weld the plate to the frame, not the supports directly to the frame like that, i'd be afraid they will tear the frame.

hey mj well that motor was cut out and i lowered the motor 3"s to help with drive shaft ange and i also had a short output shaft made for the 435 just waiting for a few parts to get finshed machined to put the t-case back in. and the motor mounts will be fine trust me the shiny black paint is to stop the rust
