What are you using for the 205 shifter(s)?

I want to run cables and levers but have the stock handle on it now.

I really like artec's stuff.

Right now I will be running both truss's, lower coil over mounts, fuel cell mount, all but the front lower link mounts at chassis are artec's stuff.

Bushing by the case as well? I was warned about having bushings way out like that about cracking transmissions and I think I cracked the tail housing at MI. Won't know til I pull my skid off but I has lots of fluids that I didn't has prior to Mission Impossible.

are you talking about the bushings at the ends of the cross member itself? My flareside crossmember looks just like John's. I hope I didn't screw something up!

Mine is done the same way, think about the amount of torque needed to move a bushing out there vs right next to it. It's not recommended to do them that way.

So, solid mount to the frame and bushing right at the case is what I need to do? I would have never thought of that on my own.

Just a rubber/poly bushing close to the Trans/T-case to allow some give. I wouldn't solid mount it to the frame but I guess it really wouldn't matter. My poly mounts at the frame don't move and that's not good since I don't have any thing closer to the trans that does move.

I have one mounted off the factory location on my Bronco and welded to the frame, I used a poly bushing inside of tube. Will this be an issue? I have factory motor mounts and trans mount.

Considering in the eb the trans tcase factory mount i was using tore at one point so I chained the trans and tcase down to the crossmember and chained it left and right to the frame with turn buckles to tighten .
