Hmmm, I don't know either, not familiar with this setup or even can visualize it since I've never dealt with this setup.

I found this picture but it is different from your mount. I think this fella made his mount. Take a look at these pics and see if any looks like what your doing. I'm not sure.

Thanks Mark. I had already resigned myself to fabbing something up. The link gives me some great ideas.

This torque arm, is this for the motor when it torques?
I suppose this is doing the same thing as the big chain I had mounted to the left side of my blown 454 to the frame to keep from possibly breaking a motor mount and twisting the drive line.

Once upon a time I saw that this arm was to attenuate the torque so that it didn't break off one of the mounting ears of the transmission. Who knows? Looks weird to me!

So the same principle just on the tranny to keep it from breaking, likely also from the twisting when jeeping.
