im thinking i will do this setup for my transmount off the front of the crossemember.



and cut up my floor some.


im going back and forth on how i want to mount the upper link mount.
either like this


or this, which is where im more leaning to because it will give me a little more frame seperation.


and how it looks from under.

and looks like i wont have to do way to much bending on the upper link to clear the starter.


couple more mock up pictures. pretty much just me figuring out exactly where im mounting my frame side track bar mount.


Did you ever put up pics of that low-profile transmission mount you came up with when it was finished? Did it just bolt to the face of the crossmember?

Build a tube hatch tied into the stock hinge locations, and have it lock in the stock pin. This will retain the structural rigidity.

Funny, this symbol is how I pictured the idea. This would be the supports in the hatch shaped hoop.

I'm pretty much hatchless ... And no cage and its holding up ..... And you have the cage and a lot more .. You will be good.

I really like your soft windows though ... Not a bad option. Did you make the windows yourself?
