T-case drop kit, trim

I had little vibration when the t-case drop wasn't put in (RC 3.25") once i put the drop kit in the vibration went away, but then my shifting went to crap, plus it looks ugly. has anyone fabricated there own drop kit? i would like to cut these drop blocks in half with a band saw and then use them...

what are your thoughts.

I've seen guys buy square piping (whatever size drop you need) and it looks alot better than just 3 spacers on each side.

So you have a bodylift? Then I would install an additinal 1" motor mount lift. With a 1" MML you can get rid of the TC drop.

You can make your own TJ drop by adding some washers between teh TC skidplate and the frame.

Jeepn13 - good call, i do have some 2" square tubing lying around that would work awsome...

Nicolas - i do have a 1" bl. the only thing is i dont want to get the mml if it isn't going to solve my problem 100%, i may just cut my own t-case drop 1" or so out of my square tubing first and see if i can just suck up the belly a bit.

I had a 1" TC drop with about 4" of lift. After installing the MML and removing the TC drop there were no vibes.

I have an auto tranny.
With the MML the shifter is nearly in the same position where it was before you installed the 1" BL and the TC drop.
