Parts check: AX15 mounting hardware.

It's been so long since I've dealt with the tranny mount hardware that I haven't a clue with what all I'm supposed to have.

A bunch of people have uploaded this diagram.


And I've been using that as a reference for the parts I need, since nobody has been able to give me a full parts list of what I need.

This is a picture of what I have so far.


So going off the diagram, it seems like I'm only missing a series of nuts and bolts, yes?


Sizes and what not on the nuts and bolts would be much appreciated if anybody has that info. This is one of the bigger things that is holding up my V8 swap right now.

EDIT: Ok so after looking closer, I don't think I'll need anybody to give me the sizes for nuts and washers. Looks like one of those "triangle shape goes into the triangle shape" deals at the local hardware store.

Just my opinion, but I decided not to use the AX-15 mounting bracket (the big black piece). Its a really poor design, the weight of the transmission is displaced through that L bend to the skid plate bolts. I've heard of instances of them cracking. I used this adapter instead that keeps the weight going straight down:

Kinda too late for you since you have the parts already but I figured I would share anyways.

Refer to my avatar...


With that being said, it's only 40 some bucks. Not that big a deal for me honestly. One thing I should also mention, I'll be driving my Jeep like it has a V8 in it as well. I'm beefing up the axles and drivetrain as much as I can, there's something fun about 4WD burnouts in the sand. Plus I live in the desert and there's a lot of opportunities to get airborne.

So that part you just referred me to, might help me out in the future. Every little bit helps when it comes to the way I treat my toys.

^ My thoughts exactly. I'm planning for a V8 swap somewhere down the road as well and just didn't want to have to worry about this part later on.
