cj5 motor mount placement

how far forward can i move my motor mounts on a 75 cj5?
if i run the radiator in the back like i was planning anyways it looks like i have room to come forward a 4 inches with the mounts. have never read anywhere anyone going more that 2 inches or so. is there any reason not to go the 4 inches?

Why would you want to move the mounts forward? Are you moving the front axle forward as well. I would keep the weight behind your front axle if possible.
