Keep breaking trans mounts

Like so many of you, I really depend on this forum to help me. I need your help again. I have a 96 zj with a 4' inft and 32' tires. Nothing too awsome but it does have front and back posi and the 4.0. There is the vital info. Anyway just five months ago I had to replace my transmission mount. Now BAM!! it needs to be replaced, same damage as before. There is a hole in the rubber causing the trans to wiggle. My motormounts are fine and my driveshafts are good. Please tell me what could make me go through two trans mounts in five months. This is my daily driver that does four wheel, but nothing serious. Help

I have used these and they work great . Yes , they fit the trans mount too and give you a spare . Price is great ! You will need some washers to use for spacers on each side as in my pic .

To install the bushing , remove rubber section of old mount , and the metal sleeve . Press new poly mount into old mount . I used a jack against the frame section of the jeep to press it in . Worked like a charm
