installing a motor mount lift

Hi guys,

As the title says, I am planning on installing a mml this weekend.

I think I have it nearly square in my head... but I'm just not quite sure how to lift the motor...

Can some one point me in the right direction...

How / where do I Jack the motor up..
- on the oil pan
- on the bell housing
- on the mount, using a bit of 4x2

Cheers.

I jacked mine up right behind the harmonic balancer on the oil pan.... I did both mounts at the same time and had no issues.

Used a 2x4 to distribute the pressure and jacked it up on the pan.

I used a piece of 2x4 and jacked right on the tranny housing. Went in with no problems. Pretty easy straight forward install.

I used this write up when I did mine a couple years ago.

I jacked mine up with a piece of 4x2 on the flat part of the bellhousing.
And Loosen the four nuts on the bottom of the trans mount before you start on the motor mounts.
They are recessed in these holes on my 97 auto but I'm sure it's similar on all models/transmissions.

The 'through bolt' on the stock motor mounts needs a 18mm wrench - if you don't have one go get one before you start - it will make life easier.
I had to go get one - picked up a 18mm socket while I was there too.
I just mention it because most kits don't have a 18mm wrench/sockets.

I'll leave it up to others to advise on linkages/radiator shroud - I didn't have to mess with those because I did a BL at the same time.

Do one side at a time and use a 2x4 and jack it up on the bell housing. That's what Zone had me do.

Watch this.

^^ awesome video, what I used. 4x4 on bell housing, definitely make sure you track down 18mm socket/wrench. Breaker bar and PB blaster. Not that hard, can be tedious lining the bolts up afterwards. Oh and make sure you house it off before hand. When you've been working on rusted bolts for the day the dirt and mud falling in your eyes is far from what you want. Had to step out and get my head straight a few times cause of that.

Here's a little write up I did when I did my BL and MML

http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/jks-...mm-155650.html

And really dont forget to loosen the trans mount nuts. You'll be surprised how much movement you get there (or at least I was)
