Had some fun last nite with my jeep. The rebuilt starter went in and the new drivers side engine mount. Wasnt that hard to put back in as it was to take out! Usually its the other way around
The car now starts much better, the lead that goes from the solenoid to the starter was loose so the starter was never getting enough power.
Im more amazed with the difference the engine mount made. The car goes thru the gears easier, 3/4 of all the shaking is gone and it drives much smoother. Its almost like the $385 for the engine mount ws worth it

When mine need to be replaced I am going to re-rubber them instead. There is a product made by Devcon that can be used for exactly that purpose.

You're going to love that exhaust. Same as what I have on mine (except for the extractors. Dunno what they are). Which muffler did you end up ordering?

Just watch the rear mounting and lengths. When mine is well hot (climbing for example) it just knocks a little on one of the leaf clamps. Had I made it all about 7 mm shorter . . .
