mr312712 Got some of this freeze off rust and bolts spray, so hopefully this will work.

HarryH3 The exhaust hanger is screwed up because your engine mounts are allowing too much movement. Replace the mounts, reassemble the hanger and then all should be well.

MadderThanMax You haven't got PB Blaster over there have you - would work better than WD40.. believe me when I say this a can of Coke Cola works better, the fizz breaks through all the rust.

Otherwise you'll need to remove the bracket and use a vice or small press to reinstall it.

The bolts should be a 15 or 16MM IIRC, there's very few standard sized fittings on WJ'S, with the exception of a couple of drive train related fasteners everything is metric from the factory.
I will try again tomorrow, but the bracket bolts are rusted on and I don't have an Impact. But I will soak them In WD-40 tomorow.

Now the reason it's popped out of that bracket could be related to the excessive engine movement you noticed.

If you could get some pics of your motor mounts we could see if they might be the cause of the movement.

I had my friend put It In 4LO and I watched the engine and when he was shifting through the gear then engine was moving almost lifted Itself out the hood Is that normal. Im and thinking all 3 mounts are bad, but I'm gonna try what u said first.

mr312712 Ok update 3 I noticed while I was shaking the exhaust the transmission and transfer case was shaking with It. Then I seen the transmission mount was moving side to side. Is that normal for the transmission mount to shake side to side?

mr312712 Here's another pic of how close the exhaust Is to the cross member.

mr312712 Ok here's some pics. U can see the exhaust almost laying on the transmission cross member, I'm not even sure It's supposed to be that low.

Attachment 2349034

Also Is the exhaust hanger missing something, cause It's just laying on the transmission hook. Seems like it would be something there to keep it up higher and keep it from hitting the cross member.
Thanks, let me know if u need more pics

Check to make sure yours is there and/or isn't damaged.
