Your transmission mount gave me some ideas. I have been thinking of redoing mine for my 700R4/NP231 adaptor. It uses a universal transmission mount and I think it allows too much movement at that mount, versus the engine mounts. Your mount is much simpler than what I was thinking, and would allow me to mount my skid plates directly to the bottom of it. Bolting to the side of the frame instead of the bottom would help with frame twist, and get the bolt heads off the bottom of the frame. I have Duff radius arms that are mounted behind the trans mount. I have had to limit the compression slightly to keep the arms from contacting the bolt heads.

Where did you source those transmission mount bushings?
