What motor mounts are you using? I used the MORE Bombproof mounts, they located the engine just right. It bolted up just fine to my TF999. Mine is an '81.

'81 Scrambler w/ FI 360 AMC, 33x12.50 BFG M/T's, 5" of lift, ARB'd Dana 44's F & R, Dana 300 clocked & twin sticked w/4:1, Warn XD9000i, etc...
2002 Grand Cherokee Limited, 2008 Overland Grand Cherokee, a 1976 CJ-7 in pieces and 3 more off-brand 4x4s...............

Which engine "stands" are you using? I believe the drivers side is the same regardless if its a L6 or V8, but the passenger side has to be changed to the V8 style. I may have that backwards.

Also the mount should have three different holes on each side that allow you to move the engine forward or backwards.

X2 on the motor mounts. I did a swap to 360 from 304 and tried to use the mounts from the 360. The full sized vehicles have different motor mounts. I used my 304 mounts and had it in under a minute

Just to the left and down from the brake booster, I had to bend some sheet metal. I don't know why it's there, but it sticks out about an inch. This was encountered when I was putting a 304 in my 85. Also there's a thread under the "stickies" on v8 swaps into CJs. Good luck!
