So, seriously, why would you post a pic if its not how "it actually is"?
Im basing my post around a wrong picture....
So, go drive 500 miles to your Jeep, and take another pic of how it "actually is" then get back to us...
IMO: you NEED some sort of mount between your tcase and cross~member, otherwise, every time you hit the throttle, engine torque will rip your mount bolts right out of the cross~member.
Ever goose the throttle in neutral while under the hood? the whole engine assembly moves, that is also happening to the transmission and tcase, with no buffer (mount) you will rip things apart quickly.
Oh, i only commented on the shock because in your wrong pic there is a shock sitting on the ground.
