Vibration damper on bottom of trans?

I have a question and have searched the threads to try to find it but I have not been able to. I have a WJ that I did an engine swap on, the exhaust hanger by the trans has a round bar with a threaded end that is the nut for the exhaust hanger then it comes down and meets another bar that is bolted to the bottom of the bell-housing. The one on the trans goes through a hole on the one that holds the exhaust hanger. I put a bolt on it but there is not enough thread on it to tighten it. Obviously I am missing something but I have not a clue what it is. Who can fill me in on this mystery? Thanks!

Ok, I'm confused. Do you have a pic?

I think hes talking about the engine/transmission vibration braces on the 4.0/42re that run along the passenger side.

Youre trying to thread the hanger bolt through the casting ear on the transmission and into the brace correct?

As you can see from the photo there is slack behind the bracket like a half an inch or so..

EDIT - I just looked underneath my '99 4.0. There is another bracket which your vehicle seems to be missing. The thickness of the 'collar' on that bracket is about 1/2", which would solve your mystery.

Haven't seen that before. What engine/trans is this?

Though it's not possible unless you moved it, it sure looks like the end of the sway bar, doesn't it?

Youre missing the brace that bolts to the side of the engine that meets the other two brackets. I'll post a pic from the FSM.

It's about 10 degrees outside, and my WJ has no lift. This is the best I can get. Excuse focus and lighting, but I think you'll see what I'm referring to.

That's actually a great picture, doityourselfMM. I'm curious and need to look at mine the next chance I get - I don't recall seeing that!

By the time I came back in the house, I was 'tinkling like ice cubes', if you catch my drift.
