    Hello!



    On the hunt for a motor mount bracket for a 1994 Wrangler. This bracket has been discontinued. It is between the motor mount and the frame sill on the passenger side of the motor. (part #52058562)



    Does anyone have any good suggestions on where to look?? I have called quite a few salvage yards and looked on vintagejeeps.com. Searches on here haven't come up with anything so far.



    We have even gone to the welding shop to see if we could fabricate this piece, but no go.



    I would appreciate any help I could get with this!!!



    Thank you!

    Erica

    Using some flat stock with the proper hole and studs that should be able to be easily reproduced even if it doesn't look pretty. It's just a motor mount offset adapter plate specific to the 2.5 liter.

    Sounds like your other option is a I6 or V8 swap..

    Glad you were able to find the part at Rock Auto. Post some pics of your repair. It could help another YJ owner with a challenging project.
