Chevrolet Small Block V8 Engine Mounts
TJ / LJ Wrangler Jeeps
New for 2011 are Novak's weld-in engine mounts for the Jeep TJ & LJ Wranglers, providing immense strength and a precise Chevrolet Small Block V8 engine installation.
Ease of Installation
These mounts are weld-in style and detailed instructions (see the PDF link below) will guide the installer for an ideal installation.
Removal of the factory frame mounts for both 2.5L I4 and 4.0L I6 engine Wranglers is required. This is best done with a separating disc, plasma torch or reciprocating saw, followed up by a grinder or flap-wheel.
The Novak mounts feature a thick 3/16 steel construction and a welded box design for the maximum strength available. They employ the best engineering and geometry to assure that they'll survive even the wildest V8's.
We have predetermined engine placement for the installer. There is a very fine window in which the Chevrolet Generation I-II Small Block V8 can properly fit into a TJ Jeep, and we've done this design legwork already.
The mounts keep themselves out of the way of the steering and its pillow block, allowing the installer to keep the entire Jeep steering system intact and undisturbed. They will also clear the exhaust headers we recommend, our CC158 series blockhuggers. Clearance from all other retained factory components is also excellent.
Each mount kit comes with our high-grade urethane isolators that are gauged well for that ideal balance of isolation and firmness. The large, graded 5/8” bolts and all associated hardware are included. Additionally, Novak will always be here to inexpensively provide replacement urethane bushings, if needed - years down the road.

Engine Mount Finish
You may enamel, powercoat or otherwise finish the bracketry and adjacent frame area to your own style.
These mounts feature an integrated platform for the reinstallation of your steering shaft carrier bearing bracket, as you will be removing the factory version. If installed correctly, the safety of your steering system will meet or exceed the factory specifications.
These Mounts are applicable to the following Jeeps & engines:
