    Could someone PLEASE take a basic measurement for me. I am placing V6 motor mounts in my 71 Jeepster. It originally had the 4cl and then in later years had a cobbled up 304 amc installed....I just need a simple measurement from the front crossmember to your motor mount. The passenger side is the one I am really needing...the driver side will fall into place after I square up the motor. Thank you all so much....

    I found this diagram while searching this site. this diagram is for Early cj5 but by some accounts the front frame section is the same as our Commandos....at least it gives me some points to measure from....thanks...

    Pass. Side, front of motor frame mount (right at motor mount hole) to crossmember is 14” even.

    Another reference point is on top of the pass. frame are two 3/8” holes, The top of a factory frame mount also has a centered 3/8” hole.
    Center line of Front frame hole to center line of hole on factory frame mount is 4 3/4”

    Thanks so much....The CJ5 diagram I posted was not useful for the Jeepster...The jeepster has a longer front frame section apparently....your description lines me right up......
