help with tcase drop

i doing a 3 inch lift on an 02 wrangler. for the tcase drop the instructions are saying to drop the skid plate and put spacers in. am i missing somthing or is that it??

my other question is how neccassary is it to do the shift linkage relocation. would it be drivable without doing this??

Personally I would say that a test drive is in order before you do either one. Odds are you are going to have some sort of vibes out of your rear dshaft with 3" lift springs in there, but you never know. And if you don't have to lower your pan then don't do it. At the same time you can shift thru all of the 4wd positions and determine if it's binding at all. Odds are if it is it won't want to stay in 4LO.

Brian, you're not missing anything. You drop the skid and that moves the t-case. I only did a two inch lift and had to do it even with a motor mount lift to finally get rid of all my vibes.

And the shift linkage is easy to adjust. Only takes a few minutes.

That's what mine is Fox, a budget boost. I installed a body lift and motor mount lift when I couldn't get rid of the vibes I had from it. Then I had to tweak the whole thing a little with three washers in the skid to lower the t-case just enough to get rid of the last of them.

It's amazing the power you lose with vibes. I was surprised at how much better it drives.

I do already have a true two, BB that is, but my boss just ordered a "3"" system which is the 2" spacers and 1" BL. I was just wondering if (when we go to put it on) what were going to have to do (if anything) with the TC.

Tell ur boss to get a MML while he's(?) is at it so you woudnt have to mess around w/ the radiator shield.. Hopefully the TC spacers wont be needed but you never know .. I wonder how bad my vibes will be w/ the 3" kit i'm getting.

The driveline is only affected by the suspension lift, not the body lift. Since you're doing 2inches of suspension, it shouldn't cause vibes but mine did.

MML isn't a bad idea...but don't get it for this reason...the fan shroud is far easier to relocate than installing a MML.

i would be very surprised if you didn't get vibes without the tcase drop

plenty of people get vibes with 2" lift...i did too

Tiny you also needed both right? MML and Tcase drop to completely get rid of the vibes? How much of Tcase drop do you have now?

Yeah, I needed both for some reason. I have a 1in motor mount lift and three washers in my tcase. Vibe free finally.

@fox:
the 98 4cyl driveline and the rear D35 is shorter than on a new TJ. i think you don´t have to drop the TC with only a 2" BB.
