My jeep doesn't have a lift. Therefore, it shouldn't have a MML or anything else associated with a lift. Is it normal for a "non-lifted" jeep's engine to be tilted to the rear of the engine compartment? I mean, the front of the engine is higher than the rear of the engine. Is this normal? I have no idea what the PO did before I got the jeep. BTW, This is a 4.0L. (Sorry about the crappy picture. I just took it a few minutes ago, in my garage, with my phone. Even with the hood all the way up against the windshield, the hood still casts a shadow onto the engine compartment.)

This picture is from the passenger side.

Looks normal, but if you post a pic of the motor mount to the frame, we can tell for sure.

I took pictures last night, but they came out kind of dark. Hard to see. I'll take more pictures today, if the rain lets up.
