    stay away from the engine mounts they will send noise and vibes up the frame rails and you'll feel the drive train more if you do the trans mount also I'm told you will get less life if you mix poly and rubber because one has more movement than the other just something to think about.

    Why is this in Hardcore Tech?


    Is there another part of the question that I am missing?

    No, not hardcore but while we are here...

    I use urethane spring eye bushings for engine and transmission mounts in my heep. I used the design and material specifically because it would be stiff. I don't want movement in the driveline but the urethane provides just enough vibration dampening that it won't rattle bolts loose like what is common when solid mounting.

    For light duty use and/or a daily driver, I see no reason to steer away from OEM rubber mounts and would recommend them.

    I mounted just my trans with polly bushings... I hated the vibration (particularly at idle) even though the motor was still on the stock rubber mounts. Most guys who dd their jeep I've spoken with hated polly mounts in ether application. They do stiffen up the drive line a bit though.

    There's your answer.

    This dude is building a chassis.

    If you're asking about the relatively mild TJ in your avatar, I think you'd be well served by rubber mounts.
