Question on YJ Engine mounts?

I need to order Engine mounts, mine are in really bad shape.... My question is should I order a 1" lift mount or just go with 0" factory height... Also what do y'all think of the M.O.R.E BombProof mounts? Or should I just go with the Energy Suspension poly's.... Thanks for the help.... Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Brown Dogs mounts look top notch! I answered a lot of my own questions just by visiting his site...lol. Hmm... now any suggestions on a Transmission mount, since it says to replace them together? Thanks again.

if you dont change them together you might get cracks in the mounts . almost for sure if you were to upgrade the tranny mount with poly and not the motor mounts like i did. they have to be the same type of material because they flex different otherwise and something has to give. i made my own motor mounts to match my upgraded tranny mount.

the round pipe is 1-1/4 schedual 80. the poly bushings are from the big eye on a yj leaf spring. the rest is 1/4" flat bar. i bought a new stock motor mount to copy. i was able to get the pictures up. i think the flat bar is 2" wide

I'm going to recomend Brown Dog too. I got my BD motor mounts 2nd hand. I wanted to put the rubber bushings in them as they came with poly. I called Tim and ordered them. So the next day Tim actually shows up at my house to make sure I was getting the right ones. Un-Real customer service!!

The mounts install was pretty easy, but my engine was out on a stand when I put on the bracket on.

I have Brown Dog 1" mounts - they are very strong, but they transmit more vibes than the stock mounts. Just be aware of that. I started with the poly bushings and then bought and installed the softer rubber bushings.

I am/was the same. I also went 1inch lift and rubber bd mounts. When brand new there were very rough. Bd warns about having them too tight and I thought that was my issue. I double checked but the bolts were fine. Drove it a bit and now they are much better. I suppose they have just settled in a bit, still a little more than than my stockers, but considering how bad the rust was I suppose that helped dampen them as well.
