Best available motor mounts for V8

cgalpin managed to break a couple bolts off my motor mounts so I will need some new ones (no big deal as they were 20 years old).

I am looking for some recommendations. I hope to do some wheeling with this thing so I would like some better than stock ones and I am willing to live with more vibes if need be.

So, what do you recommend? QT? something else?

Ron, do the Qt...I did my homework, and then installed them. They're awesome. Only downside - as someone else said - is that once you put them in you'll never have to put new ones in again .

Any noticeable increase in vibrations with those?

I had the QT mounts in a Discovery with a built 4.6. Even with a rough idle/lopey cam I really liked the more directly connected feeling the engine had to the chassis. It would probably be more pronounced in a 90 but I wouldn't hesitate to buy them again. Great product, great results.

Ive done Jaguar V12 mounts on a RRC, they are much more beefy and cheap.

For something that is wheeled heavily I would go with the QT mounts, but there is definitely a noticeable difference in noise/vibration. For most people I would probably recommend the JAg V12 mounts.
