I ve been following your channel, great DIY off road and fabrication. Referring to a video from a few years ago, you made a battery box that went under the back seat of your Grand Cherokee. Do you think there's room in a Cherokee Sport? To do the same?

Great video man I'm really excited for you! That gasket you bought is for the r154, I should have said something in your other video but I didn't notice it was the wrong gasket!

You asked, “where’s my ... shit”...I’ll tell you, it’s in between your ears!! JUST KIDDING! Excellent video, man. A real life saver. I used it step by step to replace my mount on my 2003 SXT. I just finished up! The only thing I did differently was rather than take the old mount out through the bottom, through the wheel well, I removed the battery tray support frame and took the mount out through the top. I absolutely could not get my transaxle to come towards the front of the car to give enough room to drop out the old mount. You must be stronger than me! It was four bolts and one nut to remove the battery tray frame and the old mount came right on out through the engine bay and the new one dropped right in. Set the new one in, installed the battery tray frame, tightened all battery frame bolts and nut, and then installed the bolts for the new transaxle mount. Thanks again for the video!!!
