I was going to do a bracket similar to the pto cover but also, I have 3 holes on the side of the housing by front output I was going to attach A mount from there also.... Hummmm. I might have to re think this idea. Are your trans mounts farther outboard than your engine mounts? I think as long as they are in the same plane they should move at the same rate. I think if they are wider on the trans crossmember than the engine mounts then they are going to have more leverage and in return become a stiffer mount than the engine. I'm not 100% but everything I've heard is to keep both engine and trans crossmber mounts in the same location (width) that way they move as one?

My motor mounts are a fuz narrower, maybe that is my problem. But I did tie down the drivers side to keep it from moving too much. I just don't think those frame bushings have enough give.

Put about 10 miles on it today, works great. I'm ready for Snofari, not sure what shofar is but sounds cool.

Kyle if want to go give it the once over before the trip I'm game. I'm going to be going by your place on the way up and I have room for you and Greg in the super duty.

It wouldn't take much time to load up Friday morning if we want to go that route.

All I ask is that we have a copy of the registration and its the right plate on the trailer before I hook up to it. It's a $150 ticket for having the wrong plate on a trailer

Hah..well i may have to find a different trailer..lol
Its got a legal plate...cannot remember the last time i seen the registration...
Have not yet had an issue with the po po on it...but IF they were gunna cause issues it would be when someone else had it..
Kyle, If that is the case, i may be able to get the one we used to go to the badlands. Not 100% sure he even has registration...
Sorry...
