    It's been awhile since I've been active on the forums. Just busy with other things, have kept me away. And before I new it, I hadn't touched my project in several years. Well, this is my attempt to move in a forward direction and pick up where I left off. Only with a slight Segway. Yes I am going with a different power plant. This, a 2014 6.4 Hemi out of an SRT8 Jeep.

            None on the market, for the earliest of Abodies. I needed to make my own motor mounts. Up and down, on the creeper, and in and out from under the car. I laid an eyeball on the mounting areas and took a measurement or two. I grabbed some cardboard and cut away at several patterns. This took more than a try. But it was just cardboard. Finally I taped the pattern pieces together, and actually bolted the cardboard brackets to the engine block and cradle mounting place. Rubber isolators (part# 2265) were used in between the made up brackets and the kframe. Now I grabbed a piece of 3/16 plate and with an angle grinder, cut out the patterned pieces from there. Welded together I had my set of motor mounts. Have a look.

              Looks good, should be a fun project. I'm sure it's just how it looks, but it appears there is a decent amount of room around the engine, I figured it would fit tighter than that.
