I am sure that you have said your thanks! Did you have your seat belt on? Just curious? I am pretty bad about not buckling up.

Actually I am still in the process of getting everything 100% since this was a frame up build, and I got seat belts with the family style roll bar, but they didnt work. I actually have new ones on order though. I think one thing that really helped hold me down was the seat.... I installed the Sunfire seats, and they sorta wrap around you. So I give some props to Pontiac for helping Jeepers stay safe.

Max is referring to the open hole on the skid plate where the torque arm(i.e. Insulator stud) for the tranny mount would reside. Here is an illustration ....
This actually looks nothing like my setup, obviously! My tranny mount has 4 bolts. When I purchased it, I told them it was for a 97 4.0L since that is what the tranny came out of. Im guessing it shouldnt have mattered?

Do you have a rubber mount between these 4 holes & the skid plate?


Here is the mount (mounting type, the actual brand & material are up to you) that you should have.


The mount looks like this, but disregard the bracket in this pic because it's an automatic transmission. Note the torque arm/isolator stud & bushings.


Then the bolts on the skid will look like this one.

The pics in Max's post is for an Auto, the auto uses a different mount (same as holes used as with the AX-5). The AX-15 from a TJ, as yours came from, mounts up the same as my illustration(same as a YJ AX-15). Rather than the two forward holes in the skid, it uses the two rear "recessed" holes in the skid. Take a close look at the illustration and yours should be bolted up the same on your '91. The insulator stud mount uses the same location on the skid in all applications.

You mean "bracket" and not "mount", right?

The actual rubber/poly YJ mount is the same part number for all manual & auto applications. At least in all the application charts I've seen.

Max- Yes mine is Very similar to the pic you posted. It has 4 bolts through that rubber bracket (mount), and bolts the skid plate. But my skid plate has 4 bolt going to it not the two like you showed. I had to modify my skid plate to accept the 4 bolts (PITA). I can take pics to further explain, but it might be a few days since I just put it my friends garage cause the rain is coming and I have no rear window.

That's funny, a while back I had a tracker and hit a patch of water and flipped it on the side, I climbed out the passenger side and two guys stopped to see if I was ok. I said yeah, but can you guys help me flip this thing upright? they did and I was on my way, no police necessary!
