The poly ones will vibrate you to death.

X2 on the recommendation for the OE rubber mounts. I started with the OE rubber engine and tranny mounts, switched to polyurethane for a few years until one of the engine mounts broke at the weld, and then went back to rubber engine mounts from M.O.R.E.. I later went back to a rubber tranny mount when I converted my tranny to an automatic. Rubber is a lot nicer and why OE manufacturers continue to use rubber engine, tranny, and body mounts... less vibration transmitted into the passenger compartment. Rubber mounts generally outlast our vehicles too so it's not like it's a wear issue.

With the jeep I would never run a poly mount your not trying to make a road race drag race car. I run poly in the mustang less power loss but the jeep I want a smoother ride.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
