Motor Mount Help!!!! Please


i just finish my 1inch BL and am moving on..

im installing my new 1 inch motor mount right now....but im having trouble

i loosened all the bolts and tryed jacking it up from under the oil pan but it wont work. it just jacks the whole frame up with it. its almost like the frame and motor arnt seperating.

what am i doing wrong? am i missing something?

Did you remove the nuts securing the rear motor mount, often referred to as the transmission mount?

did the same thing last weekend 1 hr for the bl 3.5 hrs for the mm lift. I put the jack under the mtr, lifted a little then removed the bolts that go threw the mm the horizontal ones, then jacked it up, the hole jeep lifted for a moment then it finally gave, and separated. i then removed the pass side mount and installed that side but loosely then to the drivers side, had to loosen the bracket that bolts the to the motor then that side . it sounds easy but was a pain in the a$$. good luck. lol
