T-Case Drop?

I am about to get a new life, 3.25 inch lift. I have been around the forum for a while now and i have come across post saying that people might need transfer case drop kits. HOw can you drop a transfer case, Do you mean the skid plate?
What does that mean?

Yes the skid plate drop is what is needed as it is what the transfer case bolts to. It is just a matter of buying 6 longer grade 8 bolts and the appropriate spacer amount. Some people use washers or anything that will give it a bit of space between the skid plate and the frame. Note that some people need a transfer case drop and some do not. I am figuring with a 3.25" lift you will need it, but install the lift and then see. Oh yea save yourself some money and go to the local Home Depot and get the bolts and washers rather than a transfer case drop kit online. I only have a 2.25" lift and I needed to drop the transfer case a 1/2" to get rid of some vibes. I am sure someone else will chime in as to how much to drop it as your lift size is pretty common. Remember that you may need to go to a custom drive shaft with that lift along with a bunch of other mods. Check it out thoroughly as the 3-4" lifts are significantly more expensive than the 2" lifts.

i got the 4 inch lift and if I remember correctly my drop was roughly an inch. and i havent had any problems with it, but if your buying a complete lift wait and see if it comes with it or not because mine did.

I just did the RC 3.25" on my TJ last week and had to do the transfer case drop today. Not a big deal "as long as you get the correct bolts" and it got rid of all the vibes.
