This is the kinda whiny crap I would expect to see in the JK forum. We drive rough riding, leaking, gas guzzling CJ's. Rattle can it and throw it in your Jeep.

Tried replacing the transmission mount. Unfortunately the p.o. made a "custom" trans crossmember so now stuck with the wrong trans mount. Any of you guys know what mount this is?

Be thankful you have a little lady to bring you gas. That happens to me it's AAA time. There's nobody to run gas out to my a*s!

It Sure wasnt because she loves me. :-P

***I did the running out of gas thing last week.... about a half a mile from home, called my daughter to bring the truck and chain to pull it the rest of the way to the house, lol***

Replaced the tie rods and drag link with Rusty's HD kit, removed the old double steering stabilizer, and replaced the ps gear box with a reman, and added the Sams HD steering box bracket ... drove it around for awhile and it's a huge improvement !

(Thanks PO for welding every single bolt, nut, and washer to the gear box and also the bracket to the frame, and the bolts to the nuts and washers inside the frame too. You made my life so much easier, lol)

Oh, and got the slider on the drivers seat working ! Yay !
