Yes you replace you stock transfer case skid with a high clearance one that sits up about 2" higher. There is a lot that goes into doing a TT correctly. There is lots of good info here you can read to get a better understanding.

To run the ultra high skid you will probably want the mega short slip yoke eliminator. Also 1" bl 1" MML and adjustable rear control arms to deal with the steep drive line angle. Also you can look into the UFC lo pro trans mount.
