Yeah, plan is to take it back the rear bar too, honestly I am not sure how much force is but into it. I cant say I have ever looked at other custom trans mounts.

thanks for saying something, We will make sure to revise it.

Yea its one of 3 points that holds the powertrain in, so its usually needs to be pretty stout.
