Transfer Case Drop Measurements

There was a picture of a homemade TCD with the hole measurements floating around, does anyone have it or a link to it?

Just take 6 pieces of 1" stock and drill them for 1/2" holes and get longer bolts.... Done

You only need six 1" longer replacement tcase skidplate bolts and enough washers stacked around each of the six bolts to space it down 1". Earlier TJs use larger SAE size bolts there so you will need Grade 5 strength bolts. If yours is newer, it uses a smaller metric bolt there which needs a 10.9 strength.

Remove one of the six bolts and go to a nut/bolt specialty store to find what you need. A Home Depot type store won't have them.
