Where is my transmission mount? Pics

So I'm planning a transmission mount replacement to coincide with my 1" BL, 1" MML and some general rust fixes. I figured I'll be under there, might as well do it all... In preparation for the transmission mount, I did some exploring and didn't see one (see pics). I saw another thread somewhere on google where there's a aftermarket TM that doesn't use the 4 bolts through the skid plate, but I really have no idea. Is my TM just gone? When I looked down there, I felt like Will Ferrell in Old School "Oh, my God. Is this bad? Is this bad? "

I know the pictures are crap, but they're the best I could do.

Thanks,
Dean

Not sure about the after-market mount that doesn't use the bolt holes, but I do know that the tc/trans must/should be supported somehow. Something must be holding it that high off the skid. Can you tell what's holding it up?

The transmission mount is under the transfer case, between it and the skidplate, it is not under the transmission.

You should see studs and nuts in the recessed skid holes.

Well, any reasonable man would think a transmission mount would be under the transmission & not under the transfer case right?

Reasonable is a relative word.
