I don't know that the TT ever saw him until it was too late. It looks like the Jeep was putting up a pretty good cloud of dust himself. The TT driver may not have seen him until he was right on top of him.

Personally, I am a fan of the "long travel" front end using stock shocks.

Khris, saw this posted over on DR and thought of the race truck. While I don't think we will have another issue with motor mounts, something like this would help keep the motor from twisting in the first place helping to keep the mounts from breaking.

I hate the new trend of crazy over the top fiberglass! That's actually not the worst that I've seen but hey Andy, if you're interested I'm sure I can get a friend to go look at it for you down there! LOL






Yeah, I've been watching that thread too and it actually had crossed my mind during the initial build but I honestly didn't expect it to fail like it did. If it happens again I'll likely be pulling the engine and v3.0 will be doing something like this...

That would be the motor bracket with poly bushings and a bolt going thru it. Off the frame rails would be a simple set of boxed in tabs that that would slide between...

Don't they now have kits so that you can make your own poly bushings? Something like that would work out great if you had to fully fab up an engine mount

Nope, big lack of interest in that thing. Freaking horrible.

I doubt it will happen again. I really think that the mount broke because a bolt came loose. I just don't see how else it could break the way that it did. That mount is pretty.

I am starting to think that you really, secretly want a full size. The problem with a full size is just as the name says, it is full sized. Not really conducive to crawling. It can be done but it is a whole lot more work.

Just chop and bob it, it will be ok if you do that. If full size Blazer guys can do it, so can you!!!!
