If your CJ-7 had a 4.2l in it from the factory, than the motor mounts should be the same. The Jeep 4.2 & 4.0 use the same block which is why it's such an easy swap.

If your CJ did not have a 4.2l in it from the factory than you're going to have to cut off the existing motor mounts (probably for a V8 if not the I6) and weld on some 4.0l mounts.

Hope this helps!
