I took a second swing at motor mounts this weekend. trying to use the factory jag mounting scheme wasn't working for me. I think the mounts need to be lower.

Inside the frame rail, just behind the x-brace is where I'm thinking for the frame pad.

more posterboard

couldn't tell crap with posterbaord. I needed metal.

more recycled WWII dodge 4x4 ambulance turned hunting buggy. This was a rear fender.

set free with fire

found something round to add shape

first look

second look (bolted down)

other side

My plan was to tie the two sides together with a brace that would run under the oil pan. The top section looks like it will be flimsy no mater what.

Add gussets to the outside too? (mounting bolt would go down through the gold colored tube)

Not really sure these parts will be used either.
