Weak motor mounts

Well due to some serious off roading and Tacoma's that were built in 2005/2006 with weak motor mounts my driver side decided to collapse into the frame. The crack was 95% around the whole frame.

I Had no choice but to pull the engine out and pull the motor mount out of the frame, weld it into place and make a gusset for it.

Pulling engine out

Driver side motor mount collapse into frame.

My buddy and I made these gussets to weld under and to the side of the frame and motor mount for support.

I had the same issue. Luckily didn't have to pull the motor to weld it.

I'll take some photos tomorrow of it on the frame, and the engine cage I'm gonna start making.
