Skid Plate Transmission Mount Question - ?

I was wondering if it's normal for the transmission mount screws to be in a different, slightly angled location now after doing a 1" MM lift. I'm thinking it's probably normal as the entire angle is changed, but I can't find any reference to it in the install tutorials.

Is this while there are no nuts on it?
Usually they will shift location compared to the original.

Yeah, with no nuts on. I was having trouble getting to them because of the angle.

Are you running a stock crossmember mount or did you swap to something like the prothane?

Usually the stock crossmember mount has enough deflection for the studs to protude pretty evenly.

However, the prothanes are so stiff it has a tendancy to not flex & requires some verbal abuse before being able to get them started.

Personally if you have the prothane (or polyurathane equivalent), I would toss it. I ran one for a short while & the vibration through the jeep was so horendous I about stopped driving it until I got a decent rubber replacement.

I have the Brown Dog Ultraflex Rubber mounts. They are called rubber but man are they giving me the vibs! Thanks for the help. I think I'm going back to factory rubber mounts and spacers.
