Jeep YJ 1987 to 1995 LS Series and Gen III Conversion Engine Mounts
Have you been thinking about swapping in an LS or Gen III engine in your Jeep YJ?
Dave's Customs Unlimited heavy duty engine mounts were designed to simplify your engine conversion. Made from CNC cut and CNC bent 3/16" and 1/4" thick HRP&O steel for a precise fit.
Engine dampening is conquered by the heavy duty polyurethane bushings and coupled with the block brackets with grade 8 hardware and all metal lock nuts. We have designed these heavy duty conversion engine mounts with the do-it-yourselfer in mind and have incorporated some adjustability into them. The block mounts are slotted which allows the installer to slightly fine tune engine placement side to side. Frame mounts can be slid slightly front to back on the frame for desired positioning before welding.
The engine mounts will mount the engine higher in the engine compartment for the much needed clearance. These engines are fairly tall and need as much clearance as possible. Competitors mounts will actually mount the engine lower in the engine compartment causing major clearance issues.
Our well-thought out, CAD-designed engine mounts offset the engine mounts further forward on the block, which gives you the much needed clearance for your exhaust or aftermarket headers.
Most aftermarket block hugger-style headers will fit with these engine mounts, unlike the few competitors making conversion mounts that will only work with their headers.
NOTE: We highly recommend a 1" body lift for added clearance!
NOTE: THESE ENGINE MOUNTS WILL OFFSET THE ENGINE TO THE DRIVER'S SIDE SLIGHTLY. WE HAVE DONE IT THIS WAY BECAUSE WE HAVE FOUND THAT 98% OF OUR YJ CUSTOMERS ARE RUNNING A PASSENGER DROP FRONT AXLE BECAUSE MOST ARE NOT RUNNING THE STOCK DANA 30 ANYMORE AND THE FORD FRONT ENDS ARE BECOMING SO HARD TO COME BY AND RIDICULOUSLY PRICED THAT MOST EVERYBODY GOES WITH A CHEVY OR DODGE FRONT AXLE. BECAUSE OF THAT, OUR MAIN FOCUS WITH OUR YJ MOUNTS HAS BEEN THOSE CUSTOMERS. IF YOU ARE ONE THAT HAS A DRIVER'S SIDE DROP, THERE IS ENOUGH ADJUSTMENT IN THE BLOCK MOUNTS TO CENTER THE ENGINE AS LONG AS YOUR FRAME HAS NOT BEEN SPRUNG.
The kit includes one pair of heavy duty conversion engine mounts.
NOTE: No engine block mounting bolts included.
