Transmission Crossmember

Evening

Working on my AW4 conversion and need to make a cross member. I can use the Cherokee cross over but can only get the 2 skid plate mounting bolts. will the two 1/2" bolts be sturdy enough to hold?

Thanks

I used my stock skid plate and drilled holes for the tranny/skid support. Worked fine

Also, the Cherokee t-case is clocked different than your YJ t-case. I had to "notch" my skid because the Cherokee t-case was lower than the YJ

You can simply re-drill the mounting holes for the T case in the back end of the transmission in these situations to re-clock it. It's not the T case that is clocked differently per se, it is the bolt holes in the back end of the transmission from XJs that are different.
If it is a T case from an XJ, it will be the same orientation as for a YJ, but if it is a TRANSMISSION from an XJ, the T case will bolt to it in a 10 degrees (driver's side down) lower position. From what vehicle did you source your AW4?

OP, can you post up any photos of what it is you are trying to come up with a solution for?

Just looked at a few of your other threads and see you've been putting this together for a while, I think I read that your AW4 came from a 96 XJ w 100K miles. I know this swap is an AW4 into a TJ, but there may be some helpful pointers on there. There are a few other AW4 swaps available online as well.
