Quick question. Just curious but from reading this thread it seems that doing this swap with an auto and not a manual would be a lot more simple. True statement?

yes and no, as far as motor bolting up yes but would have to find a c6 to 231 adapter to keep jeep transfer or run ford t case. Either way is not bad to do but i think all i have helped with have been sticks but one and he ran ford 205 transfer case

Noob question here but trying to learn as much as i can. This swap would be easier with an auto correct?

Oops didnt see the first one go through. Sorry about that. Just matching things up then. Seems simple enough.

amos, do you have some close ups of the mounts you used on the frame for the engine? I'm searching through here trying to find a pic. Also, did you weld them on or bolt? I don't have a welder so I'd have to take it somewhere to have that done.....

I just finished making my motor mounts and I'll try post some pics for you.
Mines a YJ not a TJ. The TJ frame is not as wide. I'm happy with how mine turned out.

Heres my motor mounts. 2.5 x 2.5 3/16" angle iron i also used 2x3 3/16"
tubing. I cut some metal also to place on the frame for added strength.
I purchased the round tube and bushings from M.O.R.E I put the motor where I thought it should be then I used card board to mock up the mounts before I cut the metal. Measure 5 or 6 times then cut once.
