This is often used for your exact situation. Can be used with the Jeep-style rubber motor mounts. Shipping is $5.00 to Puerto Rico.

|kecksnext||I don't see any rubber on the mount brackets. They're pretty beefy steel. I've seen a couple beefy aftermarket mounts but I already bought the replacement mount and bracket and would like to not spend another $200. Also, I only need the drivers side not the pair. I wish I could have someone fab up a plate to the original mounting bracket.|

Are you talking about the rubber mount of the bracket that bolts to the block?
It sounds like you need these: Heavy Duty Jeep TJ/LJ 4.0L Motor Mounts (00-06)
They use several more block bosses so you'll be good to go. I use these + BD mounts and my motor doesn't budge.

|kecksnext||Puerto Rico traffic got me this time. Both holes bite just not much (around 3-3 1/2 turns each). The bolts are only 2" long maybe so I don't think there's too much room left in there.|

So both holes will bite? Or just one. You could get slightly longer bolts and see how deep they will thread.

|kecksnext||If you look at the pic the 2 bolt holes on the block are busted away. I can only get the screws to bite on maybe 3 or 4 threads.|

Why can't you get a replacement? Brown dog is a good option.
Weld it, make your own of you can't get one shipped?

Broken motor mount what are my options?
I broke the motor mount bracket off the Jeep and have some concerns about replacing it. The bracket is the drivers side on a 99 TJ 4.0. I'm in Puerto Rico so replacement block is not exactly an option. Any help might just get a bottle of the finest rum for the poster with fix that works. I'm Jeepless!!!
PS. This is my daily driver so I'm dbl screwed.
Thanks in advance.
