mudslinger150 t-case is connected to the skid plate with 4 studs yes.

RAGMAN is the Tcase mounted with bolts to the skid plate ?? now its starting to make sense..
i thought the transfer case was mounted to the frame and the skid plate was just mounted to the frame rails and wasnt connected to the tcase..

is this correct ?

mudslinger150 the tcase rests on the skid plate, the skid plate is what holds up the t-case, so when you drop the skid plate the t-case goes right along with it, so the skid plate drop is known as a T-case drop kit

i think ive been wrong all this time, it appears that the only drop was the skid plate, i dont think the tcase was dropped, and now looking back at the install sheets online, it doesnt show a tcase drop, just spacers for the skid plate, so i guess i dont have the tcase drop. hmmm... NOW, i am really really confused.. im assuming the skid was needed to be dropped so the driveshafts didnt rub it or hit it..

i need a book. do they make "Jeepin for Dummies" ???

mudslinger150 even if you dont get vibrations with a 4" kit i would still add in the t-case drop bracket, it is not designed for vibration reduction it is to keep proper drive line angles a.k.a. - not wear out your dirve shaft. I would either save some money and do it right with a cv drive shaft or put in the t-case drop kit.

sublimemaze So what is the negitive side to the transfer case drop spacer kits? just losing a little belly pan clearance or other things? What do the driveline vibrations feel like and when do they occur? -Thanks

is it necessary to use the tcase drop, or is it ok to remove it.
i have heard that if you do not have driveline vibrations to just keep it, others seem to have no issue without it..

im confused.. is it needed or not, and why (if removed) would it be better to get 1" motor mounts..

csamn2007 I saw some guy on the trail the other day he had a 5.5 inch lift and a 2 or 3 inch t-case drop, what a waste!

The order came in 3-4 days. I ordered from Jeffrey @ Rough Country directly.
Why did you lower the tcase?
09-14-2009 03:17 PM
munroejp Did you have to adjust the linkage too as well as the t-case plate?

Rough Country Combo Lift 2.5" + 1.25"

Thinking about buying...

Has anyone installed the Rough Country combination (2.5" + 1.25") lift?

Was wondering if I will have to modify anything in order to install?


Thx,
JPM
