I just did the jks motor mount lift on the 2.5 this past weekend.... Turned out to be more of a headache then expected... I removed the alternator so that took extra time but biggest issue was lining up all the bolt holes to get bolts in!!! Note to self. Leave the ones you get in loose until all bolts are in place... If I had to do it over I would get the brown dog mml.. The jks was just brackets that u add to existing motor mounts. Brown dog has the lift built into the mml I think

I almost went that route when i did mine. I wound up going with M.O.R.E. mounts but they are stupid high priced. Brown dog wasnt in business when i did it. Ive heard nothing but good things about brown dog products.

Brown dog, do your 2.5 mounts have a softer rubber than the 6 version? When i put the MOREs on it passed major vibes from the engine through the chassis. Took forever for them to soften up. Its nothing on MORE, they warned me when i bought them that i would experience that because the 2.5 is poorly balanced. Thats why I almost went the jks route.
Your limited slip differential sucks.
