IslandTJ Hmmm, I'm wondering if we are discussing the same thing...

This is the bracket that I have mounted in question. You can't really tell but there is a slope to it. The bracket mounts to the transfer case skid and is what secures the 32RH transmission to the skid.

CY99TJ Correction, 4 dimples are ahead of the mounting bolts tword the front of the Jeep.

CY99TJ If i remember corectly the 6 TC Skid bolts would not align correctly if it was backwards. The skid should slop to the rear. On your skid the 4 large dimples should be behind your TC mounting bracket. What size lift are you running?

Transfer case skid 32RH transmission support bracket orientation

Well my "no body lift" 0.25" UCF skid came in this past Monday. First off, I was really impressed with the stoutness and quality of the skid. Over the next weekdays, I spent my evenings after work, priming and painting the skid for a weekend install.

When the weekend finally came, I was so exited to remove my OEM skid that I forgot and didn't take note of the orientation of the transmission support bracket that is mounted on the skid. As such, I installed the bracket with the higher side towards the front and the lower side to the rear (the bracket is sloping downwards to the rear).

When I finally finished installing the skid, I took the Jeep on a test drive and felt vibes between 15-30 mph, despite my 1" MML. To remedy, I began installing one washer at a time, until the vibes disappeared. Six washers ultimately did the trick, lowering the skid by 0.75". At the end of the day, I am still very happy with the product and the protection it will give me.

I am still wondering if I installed the transmission support bracket correctly. Would someone chime in and let me know if I have the bracket in correctly i.e. sloping towards the rear, or do I need to take down the skid and reverse the bracket on the skid to where it is sloping towards the front (low side towards the front and high side towards the rear).

Mahalo.
