Transmission Mount/Slip Yoke

Went over a whoop today and broke my transmission mount. Slid over a few inches and the u-joint was hitting the heat shield off the exhaust and making the worst noise in the world.
The stock bolts holding the tranny to the skid plate are pretty sheered, rocks and such...
Grabbed a ratchet strap tied it on and scooted it over and drove 50 miles home like that.
So im thinking ill cut the sheered bolts off, throw my jack under the tranny and drop the skid plate.Replace with Energy Performance Transmission Mounts from autozone.
Any suggestions?
Also saw a little shiny part on the slip yoke, wondering if thats normal? Just from flex?
Thanks for any suggestions. I'm young, like words from the wise.

Yeah that much slapping around and you will see shiny spots on the slip yoke when maxing the flex. Your on track for a repair just take a good look at everything else.

Got under there and started taking it all apart. Found it was tweaked (rotated) a bit. Looked under the hood and saw the entire engine had rotated a few degrees. After struggling with the jack more we found that there was no way it could be this difficult, another closer inspection of the motor mounts revealed that the bracket coming off the engine block had cracked on the passenger side.
So found another mount from Brown Dog Ind. and ordered it. Sadly it was the shorter mount, so the steel mount on one side and pot metal mount on the other side doesnt sound like a good combo....

... Its a jeep. Nothing is simple that starts out to be. Plan for the worst and hope for the best.
