I'm sure the OPs got enough to mull over.

Now you know you her wrapped up under an electric blanket and don't want to pull it off in the case she might get a cold.

The part that bolts to the motor when used in a CJ looks like this..



These are off a Wagoneer..

Matt was correct. I had the torque arm bolted to the transmission wrong. Now I got another problem.

The skid plate is a fraction of an inch off from the mounting holes.

1/32" or 31/22"? Loosen the bolts that hold the tranny mount to the skid plate, and, the engine mount to frame bolts if needed. Use a large #3 Phillips screwdriver or a spud/punch to move things around.

Heck, even a blind hog finds a wallow once in a while!

Yep, as Bill said, use a Philips to pry the skid plate around. Stick it in a bolt hole and pry the skid while starting a bolt in another hole. Once you get one started on each side, the rest should go pretty easily.

I've had lots of practice at this, lately.

It's like an 1/8 of an inch off. I didn't know if forcing the skid plate to mount in there would cause any drive line issues.

Thanks guys you're the best.

Ok I got the skid plate mounted and I am tightening everything up. How tight should the stabilizer stud be?
