Had a friend CAD up the Engine skid mounts. Ordered from sundcutsend. $31 for the two mounts.

Not bad for some customnlaser cut 1/4" steel mounts.
 
I'll have to bend the single hole over to about a 90*

Just ordered the Artec rear shock mounts. sittting flat on the floor. i’ve got a 1/4” of room to the brake line.
 
started mocking up the mounting for the savvy engine skid. looks like it will play nicely with the Axis motor mounts.

emailed Gman to see if i can get a mount with just a little longer area for the mounting holes. I also have a coworker who is friends with a retired machinist who likes making things in his spare time.

i definitely do t have the tools to create a bracket on my own.

Since i had the rear axle out to make some adjustments to the pinion angle, i went ahead and removed the EVAP Canister.

three bolts were easy to see the fourth being hidden a little over the frame rail.

biggest problem was pulling out the wheel well cover.
