1 step forward two steps back, while changing out the front shocks for our spare set of fresh rebuilds, i noticed the driver side motor mount looked different. Come to find out 6 of the 7 bolts had sheared off in the block and the one that was still in there was bent and backed half way out.

so far i got 5 bolts out and cleaned up the holes but we may be pulling the motor tonight to drill and re-tap the other 2 holes.

If any one out there is going to be racing i highly recommend jeep speed style 4.0 liter mounts as this has a been a problem plaguing us from the beginning, and make sure its part of your maintenance to check the bolts on a regular basis. The stock 4.0 only have 3 bolts per side.
