Transfer case drop, motor mount lift?
I have a body lift and my transfer case drop annoys me so much. It doesn't shift right and the shift boot wont stay. if i get a motor mount lift and ditch the t-case drop kit will it solve the problem?!

Not enough info...

How tall is your suspension lift, sans the body lift?

two inch skyjacker suspension and two inch body lift.

The 2" body lift and drop is your issue. Many resolve by by trimming the plastic and/or body where it won't clear on the shifter, while some will heat and bend the shifter itself.

Not a fan of body lifts exceeding 1", perhaps consider abandoning that tall of a body lift.

u needed a tcase drop with only a 2" lift? .... hmmm ... but anyways the motor mount lift is a better way to go than the tcase drop is

A 1" motor mount lift cured my slight vibe when I had a 2" lift. Stock driveshaft. No TC drop needed. It wasn't until I installed a 3" lift and a tummy that I needed the SYE.

depending on the size of your tcase drop .... im assuming 1" .... you have changed the distance between your body and tranny by nearly 3" ... this is why you are having problems ... im sure your tcase shifts bad as well . ... the only way I would consider running a 2" body is if I was doing a completely flat belly and gas tank lift
