Mine was pretty simple. Just have to remove the plastic shield that's down there (mine was already removed by some road debris) and just unbolt stock and replace with bwoody.

I'm too big to get under there stop had it done by one of my local srt guys. Took all of 20 minutes to change upper and lower motor mounts.

Also may want to use a jack under the motor to keep it from shifting if you still have stock upper.

Do a search under this part of the forum. There is a precise measurement that must be made before tightening/torqueing the upper and lower mounts.

I never did any measuring, but had no problems with having to move the motor for any of this. We just unbolted the upper and installed the dog bone, then did same with lower.

I do have more vibration than I did before, but that was to be expected. More vibrations with a/c on.

Do hear some sound transfer with a/c on, but again, to be expected.

10 minute job; no way you can mess things up. Searches yield results.

If you went with inserts, solid mounts, or anything stiffer expect more noise as well as vibration. Won't be as apparent though if you drive a manual; I would recommend soft-inserts or polyurethane-fill if equipped with an automatic.
