Picked up the 8.25..... But I busted off a shock mount bolt also took the gears and stuff from the front axle and then grabbed the front door seals off a 98 they are better condition and also thicker than mine.

you can prob just drill it out and put a bolt and a nut though it. The TJ's use a bolt and nut.

Drill it out and put a bolt through it. I'll weld the bolt to the bracket for you. Before you do much work make sure it is a 29 spline 8.25

I broke the threaded portion off the shock mount stud on my 8.25. Thought about drilling it out but if you look at it youll see thats a LOT to drill through.

I ended up grinding the remaining threads down flat to the shank and welding a grade 8 bolt of similar thread size to it. Held up great for a few months now. Something to consider because I had it fixed way faster this way.

Came off a 98 with 355 gears. It's got a big round part on the other side of the bracket did u take that off to?
