Last time we used Mountain Off-Road Enterprises (m.o.r.e.) spring hangers. This time we’re using the company’s raw cj-5 to amc motor mounts (pn jm100) that we modified and rotated to mount the xj four-cylinder between our framerails. It’s a good idea to add heavy tack welds to the motor mounts until you are sure of the positioning. It’s much easier to cut tack welds than finish welds. Ask us how we know. Yep, we fully burned these in and then decided to move the motor forward a few inches!
