Default Stronger Engine Mount or Brace for LST2

Who makes a stronger/better engine mount for the LST2?

I may have that wrong - is it the engine brace that needs to be upgraded?

Thanks.

Its the brace that needs replacing, the thing at the bottom.

Dynamite makes a good one.

For the engine mount, the stock one is OK, alternately you could get the finned one.

Most do not know they have broken them as they are out of view and hard to see.
They really crack more then break. Take a good look at it every once in a while and you might see it is cracked.

Dynamite is the brace of choice for most.

Here is everything you could want to know about the lst2:

Since it's called lstforums and lstforums.com takes you there, why would hdrcvideos.com be used?

What is the difference? Debate that with the site owner (probably one of the best authorities on the lst2 around). Visit the site, just about the best vehicle specific site out there.
