Brown Dog Header Super Engine Brackets (pair) for 2000-2006 4.0L TJ and LJ Wrangler
Designed to accommodate 4.0L Jeep TJ with aftermarket headers -- including APN, Banks, Borla, Edlebrock, Hedman, JPN, PaceSetter, and Rugged Ridge headers -- these super engine brackets bolt directly to existing thread bosses keeping the engine securely in place while leaving lots of room for header clearance. Extends header life by securing engine and reducing header vibration.
The left (driver) side all-steel, double-welded Super Engine Bracket uses the three original thread bosses and four others not used for any other purpose. The right (passenger) side uses three original and four additional thread bosses. These additional bolts virtually eliminates offroad torsional forces shearing bolts or ripping bolts from case.  Installation requires no engine block modification nor relocation of engine accessories.

As with all Brown Dog engine brackets, these Super Brackets feature the Brown Dog's unique lipless design which eases installation of MMLs. This all-steel double-welded engine bracket accepts stock-height motor mounts (MMs) or 1" or 2" motor mount lifts (MMLs). Unique lipless bracket design will not interfere with installation of 1" or 2" MMLs. 

Purchase brackets individually, as a pair, or in a kit with Brown Dog motor mounts. While these brackets will accommodate OE motor mounts, we  recommend upgrading to Brown Dog high-performance motor mounts or motor mount lifts. The original mounts, designed for street driving, simply won't stand up to the torsional forces experienced offroad. 
Change mounts and brackets all at the same time. And never have to do it again. Brown Dog Super Kits combine these Super Brackets with either Classic Polyurethane or Ultra-Flex Rubber motor mounts. Kits also available for 1" or 2" Motor Mount Lifts (MMLs) with these Super Brackets.

The Brown Dog ships all new 10.9 hardness metric (replaces original 9.8 harness metric bolts) and Grade 8 SAE mounting hardware with this bracket. This includes all new block bolts and thru-bolts, lock nuts and washers for securing brackets to motor mounts (or motor mount lifts).  Please note, a combination of metric and SAE bolts will be sent with the brackets to match the thread bosses per the Professional Engine Remanufacturing Association specifications. These specifications have been confirmed on our own engine block.

Application Notes
  • Wrangler TJ/LJ, 2000-2006.
  • When installing an engine from a 2000-2006 TJ or LJ, these brackets can also be used with earlier Wrangler TJ and YJ. If installing this engine on a Cherokee XJ, call us for a special bracket. If installing a new engine and unsure if it's from a pre-2000 Wrangler or not, please call 866-401-3877 or contact us.
  • Please note, all original Cherokee XJ 4.0L engines (even those installed at the factory in 2000 and later) are the early model 4.0L which requires our S2752 Series. Do not order these brackets for 4.0L engines originally installed in Cherokee XJ.
Installation Notes
  • In preparation for installation, we suggest using Naval Jelly or PB Blaster with a spiral wire brush to clean out the additional engine block thread bosses.  
  • Since M10 and 3/8 thread bosses are very, very similar, we do not suggest re-tapping holes.
  • A copy of the installation instructions showing which holes take which bolts will be included with your bracket. We can also email it ahead of time when requested.
