Fan hitting shroud after Tcase drop

I installed the zone 3 in lift this weekend, and I went for a drive. needed the tcase drop, so I installed it quick. Easy install, went to start the jeep and heard this horrible sound. figured out it was the fan hittin the shroud for about 4 inches on the top drivers side. I guess the shift of location of the tcase made the engine shift slightly moving the fan. what can I do to fix this quick? I tried shaving it and bending it quick, and it helped some but not enough. though of heating the plastic and bending or cutting part of the shroud off.

You can re-locate it pretty easy. Take the screws out and move it up about a 1/4". You might need new screws with fender washers.

I had the opposite, did a tuck and was close to the shroud. Remove the 4 screws and elongate the holes with a dremel or something and reinstall the shroud.

no, no BL just did the tcase drop. I just drove it work work and home and it actually ground it down lol, but it still slightly hits. I will try to relocate the shroud tomorrow. the bottom two screws look kinda hard to get to, and tips?
