On the trans mount bolts:
Think of it this way: if the nuts were to come off with the bolts inserted from the rear the bolts would only have to back out say 3/4" before the transmission would come crashing down and the drivetrain would be resting on the t-case via the crossmember. With them in from the front they would have to back out the full length of the bolt first.
This is odd. I just went and looked at mine and the crossmember bolt is in the from the rear and everything is snug with no problems. As I think about it I remember it was from the front where bolt was hitting frame with C bolts snug. I've obviously heard the saying that all jeeps are different but this seems like a big difference. And the Under Armor works with both? Interesting.

Understand your point on the transmission mount and I'll change it next time I have it apart.

I honestly don't recall which way it is now as I was messing around with both directions while dealing with the bolt conflict. Easy to change if a good reason for it to be one way. Seems like I should change the transmission mount as I know those are in from the back. Your point makes sense, although I'm not real concerned about anything coming loose in the there. Fit is so tight for everything.

Edit: Maybe I should know better than to take technical advice from Gerald.
Unless you don't know how to properly tighten a bolt up I stand by my advice. Ask Blanie the same question and I'm sure you get more than an ear full. Look at the installed pictures in these threads. They all show the bolt going in from the back! In fact, so you can learn, the serrated flange nut is best used on the inside. It is better if you turn the bolt than the nut as the serrated nut will grab better thus dimishing the likely hood of it backing off. If you tighten from the nut side you flatten out the serrated edge more.

Thank god one less person I won't need to help any longer!

Edit: Really!

Gerald, I was agreeing with you that it comes from the rear. Noturmailman was the one saying it should come from the front (and it does look like in his pictures like he did it that way). Please don't cut me off.

Settle down

It seems it doesn't really matter which way the cross member bolts go in, I just stated how I did it.

I'll go back and remove the bold type, maybe that will make every one feel better

Powder coater just called. Said I could pick everything up at lunch tomorrow. He also came down quite a bit on the price due to the wait. He wants to try a new powder he's just started using. He called it "Black Polly Peel". Apparently it's get a heavy texture to it. It will still be gloss with clear over it, but when I beat something against a rock and touch it up with rattle can it will hide it better. He's going to do the spacer plates with regular satin black and no clear. So, we'll see what happens...

I also told him that I didn't mean to send him the exhaust hanger bracket, so he's not going to spray it.

Looking forward to seeing the coating!

I actually just found the data on it online.

http://www.trojanpowder.com/pdfs/TCI%20Color%20Card.pdf

The color swatch is on page 9.

According to the chart on page 4 it shoudl be one of the best choices for this type of application; hard, flexibe, and tough.

And it should look really unique with the clear over it. I can't wait to see it!

Well not to go too far off topic but.. when I was in the marines I worked on ch53's (big helicopter). One day someone told me that the bolts on a some mounting arms were in backwards. After alittle research, It says the bolts will be installed with the bolt head toward the Direction of flight (or movement). if for some reason the nut came off the bolt would be pushed in and not out by the wind. Not that it matters to much on a jeep. but the military learned some lesson somewhere along the way and made it a rule.

If anyone ever gets a Jeep up fast enough for the wind force to blow bolts out, the nut loose behind the steering wheel is the biggest problem

Tried to pick up the parts from powder coat at lunch. The logo didn't work out. The black crepped up under the edges of the tape too much. That was not his fault. But, once the parts were in the sun you could see that everything had been sprayed too thin. So, I left it and he's recoating. I do like the poly peel look though. Atleast I did get to re-clain my exhaust hanger, so I can get the exhaust taken care of and it will be driveable. This is getting old fast!! :

There seems to be a dark cloud looming over my Jeep build. Now the hydrostatic transaxle in my garden tractor has puked out on me. So I will have to start re-building it tonight when I get home. Maybe I'll get lucky and can finish it before my parts come back from powder coat...
