Ok, I own a toyota, but this is another matter,
I'm looking into poly or stock or whatever <IMG SRC="smilies/rolleyes.gif" border="0"> engine and transmission mounts for the late 80's toyota pickups,
I'm swapping in the drive train from a friends 85 into my samurai, and I will need to make/buy/sell my soul for the mounts, and I have no clew as to what works for you guys.. Also, Looking for suggestions on the dual tcase setups, or 4.?:1 kits out there?
Thanks in advance

Well, the easy part will be the transmission crossmember.....
Bud R. can probably hook you up with one, or you can get the plate that DRM sells, and tie it into the frame yourself.

Bud did a good job of making one of his crossmembers for me, with me giving him dimensions over the phone. He had to make mine more "custom" because I did a tranny swap, and none of the stock ones would work, so he had to start from scratch.

If you can weld and have a way to bend tube, you could go with DRM's and tie it into the frame yourself, that way you can measure to fit.

Bud re-uses the stock rubber tcase mount, and DRMs goes without it.....

Then again, All-Pro may be able to whip you up one of theirs to fit, if you supply dimensions.......

I know Bud and DRM's design will work with either single or dual case, not sure about All-Pro......
