Tramsmission skid plate

Hey guys - I have a 93 yj that has a spacer set up between the transmission and the skid plate. Last week that 1" drop between the two caused a clearance issue I didnt really like. I know the transmission has one mounting bracket on the skid plate.. Is there a shorter bracket you can buy to replace it when I remove the spacers? Any tips would be appreciated

If you remove the spacers you will change the angle of the driveshaft......vibration

Yea it sounds like a TC drop, most come with the lift kits. If you remove it, it may cause vibrations.

is your jeep still lifted? if so... leave it. You'll save yourself alot of vibration and U-Joint replacements.

Or you can use a SYE kit and that will get rid of your TC drop and improve your driveline angle.

I already have the SYE and CV driveshaft... I'm researching the tc drop to see if it would be worth my while to remove it...

How much lift? You could shim your rear end up to improve your angles also if needed to remove your tcase drop.

The reason usually for a TC drop is because someone is running a standard slip yoke driveshaft and the lift causes an extreme angle on that design which leads to stress on the components and possible driveshaft failure (or explosion of the TC bell housing from personal experience). Using a double cardan driveshaft along with a SYE kit eliminates the need for a transfer case drop as long as your pinion angle is correct.
