    1" motor mounts.

    I am going to make some 1" motor mounts for my jeep. I have attached some CAD shots of what I was thinking. any suggestions or concerned criticism would be helpful.

    Thanks

    any suggestions
    lol ya make extras!! people will want those


    Assuming poly bushings, i've always felt that the whole driveline should be on the same material, so by doing this i would strongly look into the trans mount going to poly as well, the lesser of the two materials will take the brunt of the torque and may cause premature failure.
    Strength is nothing more than how well you hide the pain

    Yer hot, wet, and extremely satisfying. You always put a smile on my face and yer the first thing i want in my mouth when i wake up....aaaaaahhhhhh Coffee, my only friend.

    I will be going poly bushings with inner sleeve. the only reason I am greasing is more for the squeek and dissassembly in the future.

    Thanks for the complements.

    Yup looks like my MORE ones,

    One bolt and one was a stud though I believe, maybe easier to get things lined up not sure why else

    They work fine for me

    Look like my Currie mounts. Any reason why the mount is 3 pieces at the bottom and not just 1 and bend it. Mine also had a stud and I if I recall it was for the side closest to the engine cause you can't get a wrench in there.

    I am using 1/4" material so it would be tough for me to bend. also, with bending, you weakin the material as you are stretching it. the stud is a good idea as it aids in trying to work around the motor hangers.

    actually you wouldn't need to bend it if you just took a hole saw the diameter of the sleeve through a piece of 2x6 or so...

    no problem, i would also position the grease nipple facing more upwards and outwards rather than down into the mount

    Thread jacking here....... Received my front and rear bumpers custom made by Steve last week and they are Shwwweeet.

    For anyone looking for some very solid, well built bumpers, Steve makes some dandy's. I especially like the custom licence plate mount
    RIP OD, YOU'LL BE MISSED.... BUT that's OK 'cuz you've been REPLACED !!!
