Get rid of your transfer case drop, CHEAP

I have a 2.5" RC lift, and had a TC drop on it, after getting stuck on the TC, I talked to a friend of mine that owns an auto shop and is way into the jeep thing, He suggested trying a 1" motor mount lift instead of a SYE.

Bought these for $60: JKS Manufacturing: Body & Motor Mount Lifts

Removed the TC drop and ran it up to 80 on the freeway, no vibes at all.
Besides installing the lift blocks, I had to elongate the holes in the radiator shroud a little to lift it up as the rad fan was hitting the top of it.

Piece of cake. No bookoo bucks for a SYE (yet, that will come if I ever lift it higher)

Send a message via AIM to s3nt3nc3d's a very popular thing to do...I was under the impression that you should do it in conjunction with a 1.25" body lift though (I think that's why your radiator shroud holes needs elongated).

You can do it with a body lift, makes it easier. But a MML doesn't necessarily work for every jeep to get things lined up enough not to vibrate at certain speeds. Mine still does it slightly at 50.
