I am needing to know this because i'm trying to center my custom skid. I should have taken measurements before I dropped the factory but I didn't. If no one knows for 100% sure, I will have to put it all back together just to see. Please help... thanks. Have a great day.

i forgot to mark mine as well. there is a lot of variation in these TJ frames and mounts and what is centered on one might not be on another. i put mine together many times and it is still easier than cutting and redoing a hasty weld. sorry I know that isnt what you want to hear....

When I installed my 33 Engineering skid on my 04 with the NV3550 I made an observation that the transmission mounting point is NOT centered between the frame. I don't remember which direction off center it was?

I'm not 100%, but would it make sense that it would be off center the same way the engine is? I know the crankshaft is off center I think to the Pass side.

it's not centered. I ended up putting the factory skid back on to get the mounting points. Then I jacked it up again. I jacked from the back of the mount so it didn't move to one side while jacking it up.
