I used the CJ5 right motor mount. Completely removed the Left and welded a 2A Left in its place properly aligned for a 2A engine front plate.but in my case the left had already been cobbled up in the 50's when the frame was swapped in to this jeep.

Mark,

Did the cj5 center grill mount work with your setup or did you end up making something different? Kind of a small thing but it would be easier to cut off now if it needs to come off. It seems way overbuilt compared with the flatty center mount but I imagine there is a good bit more weight on the front sheet metal for a cj5

Has nothing to do with the grill what so ever. I'm keeping mine as an anchor for a Winch mount.

   Nice "salad" Andy !

    It is good to see that you are back on the project. And I you're probably smiling big time just knowing that you probably saved that willys from the recycler.

    I'm keeping my drawbar hitch which needs mucho attention, because I had one on my first '46 and with the little stinger ball mount. The stinger acted as a skid on rock at the bottom of a descent, to protect my rear-mounted spare. they're cool.
Your front bumper turned out great after a few "minutes" of attention. haha

   ( wish I would have purchased stock in Krylon Paints years ago )   hahaha
