Looking for one that is stock design but shorter. Is there such a mount?

Why stock design? They don't last with off-road abuse

Guess I worded that wrong, it doesn't have to be same design just same bolt pattern.

That's a nice looking mount. But whats the height of it. Looks about the same as stock. I need one shorter.

What do you need one shorter *for*?


As far as I'm aware, no engineered shorter mount exists. SFR modified my crossmember for me to lower my setup about 5/8".

the SFR one is stock height, maybe a little bit taller.

It is stock height. It is taller than a lot of used ones that come out because the stock style compresses with use.

If you want one that sets lower without losing ground clearance. get a crossmember for a 5 speed.

Like Cal said, there is no low profile XJ trans mount like there are for the wrangler crowd

Well in the process of making a cross member out of 2x6 rec. Already cut center out and recessed as much as possible. Would like to get cross member even with lower uni rails, without clocking t-case. Need about a 1" to 1 1/2 more up to be there.

Rust's has a 1inch drop crossmember as well.

You will have to notch the crap out if the cross member to clear the front shaft, and if you drop that low it may have some serious interference. I did a 2x4 x member flat with the rails. I recessed the mount about 3)4-1 in into the xmember and used a Daystar mount. I would've had to notch it to clear the shaft but clocked the tcase as well. If you're going thru the effort to make a flat cross member why not clock the case? It was actually pretty easy to do and nothing is below my frame rails.

X2. Just clock it enough to clear the crossmember. I clocked mine a bit much and had to modify the floors more than I would've liked. I also did it with a 2x6 crossmember and a flat belly
