Re: Motor Block Mount Breakage

The first time I broke bolts on the passenger side was going over railroad tracks. My Jeep has never seen off-road at this point. The second time was shortly after I got back from my second trip to the Rubicon.(I did have a failed DS mount that may have added to the stress on the opposite side. ��*♂️ I was lucky the first time and got the broken bolts out (granted I pulled the engine) The second time I said screw it and went with Brown Dog motor plates as opposed to pulling the engine again. I do worry about the passenger side breaking again, and am looking to build a bracket that will grab the oil pan rail and back to the MM through bolt.

PS- if anyone’s seen such a bracket already out there, I’d love to know about it. Not sure if I’ll have time to get something dabbed up before my next outing...
