Well I've ran the Gorilla's from Trail Tough. Tore drive side frame mount off frame. They no longer sell them. Have ran poly from Rockrat and broke several of those. He no longer sells them. His poly guy was pouring bad batches. Using the bolt with shock mount busing (rock road,spider and other vendors) They work but will wallow out the mounting holes. I would just use stock but with my heavy foot and drive it like I stole it attitude. They won't even last 1 trip. Than the solid puck like Trail Gears. A lot of people including some vendors say don't run them. So there's you choice.

I had the TT solid mounts... they transfered alot of vibration.
I also have the Mighty Kong.

Now I just run the Kong with the stock mounts.

I run the Kong with the bolt and shock bushing thru them (All 3 of my zuks). What Rocky Road,Spider and other vendors sell. One kong with the 6.4:1 gears has a rockrat spine incorprated into it.

I USED to run the Kong with solid mounts until I ripped both sides off the T-case and ruined my case.  Now I run ZORs and wont run anything else.

I went from factory bent mounts to the ZOR and love it.  When I installed the 4:9 to case I had a rash of drive shafts break, thought it was the TC jumping around on the factory mounts.  Ordered the ZOR Pink Snatch and now the case dosn't move at all, can't see how you can make a stronger mount using factory mounting points.  I still broke drive shafts till I found that I was making them about an inch too long and they were bottoming out.
I vote for the Snatch.

I don't like the idea of solid mounts because Suzuki engineered the T-case to mount to the frame through rubber bushings for a reason.

But I also don't like tearing the driver's side stock rubber mount all the time.

My solution (which has worked perfectly so far!) has been to run Trail Tough's solid mount on the driver's side, and the OEM rubber mounts on the passenger side.  With the 1 solid mount on the "pull" side of the T-case, I no longer have a too-soft mounting system that allows the T-case to move around and damage the frame.  But with soft rubber OEM mounts on the passenger side, the t-case can still move around a little bit as Suzuki intended, which absorbs vibrations and prevents frame and t-case damage.
