Yup, I already have an extra bracket. So.... The only difference is the front tin?
Is that because of the mustache bar?
Thanks for the info!

If not they sell a conversion kit that mounts to the oil pump plate.  I think they sell for about $12.  You WILL need to mount the mustache bar as there isn't anything else holding up the engine and trans outside of the front trans mounts.
