Exclamation Motor Mount Lift Drivers Side...HELP!!!!

Last night I installed a 1.25" body lift, then installed a 1" motor mount. I hit some bumps along the way, but I got through everything until the last nut... I'm having the hardest time getting a wrench on the Drivers side cross-bolt that secures the motor to the mount. I did get the cross-bolt through the holes, but i just can't get a wrench on it to tighten it down. I hope you guys have some tricks for me! I had to use the factory bottle jack to line up the drivers side cross-bolt...that was one of my tricks. I think i threw a mini party for myself when it finally went through!!!

Two reasons. The first is to change the driveline to eliminate vibes. The second is so that you don't have to change the fan shroud after doing a BL.

Oh, and to the OP... there's a video on Rokman's site that shows how best to do the drivers side. They have you remove the whole assembly and reverse the bolt when you put it back on so it's easier the next time.
