Recommendations for Motor mounts and transmission mount refurbishment on 95 ZJ

Good afternoon,

I will need to eventually fix the oem header exhaust leaks and want to get my ducks in a row. 26 years of use and the stock EM shows all the typical cracks

Should I take the original and have a shop re-weld it or just entirely replace the exhaust manifold?

Planned on getting a felpro gasket and one of the flex pipe manifolds on line. Already got a Dorman exhaust and intake bolt kit but havent got new compression washers yet?

But in my search and knowledge gathering phase now, I'm seeing recommendations to remove and replace both motor mounts and the transmission mount on the 242 and there are several choices, brands, types?

Any part #s or advice, as I dont want to redo this anytime soon, id rather it be "once and done" and dont want to crack the replacement exhaust all over again by not going with a complete fix and the correct parts.

Anyone else, swap the motor and transmission mount on a ZJ in prep for exhaust manifold replacement/repair?

Suggestions, guidance, help, advice?

All is helpful. Thx

These will work well and ship out fast.

These are the best but most expensive and you may have to wait if he has to make them.

I've had both. The welds and powder coating on the Ironman are really nice but the price reflects it. The DB don't look nearly as nice but they'll work just fine.

Scrap the exhaust manifold, pick up a quality header from Banks or similar. The cheap ebay headers will crack, much faster than the stock unit.
