T-case drop kit, trim
 
I had little vibration when the t-case drop wasn't put in (RC 3.25") once i put the drop kit in the vibration went away, but then my shifting went to crap, plus it looks ugly. has anyone fabricated there own drop kit? i would like to cut these drop blocks in half with a band saw and then use them...

what are your thoughts.

I've seen guys buy square piping (whatever size drop you need) and it looks alot better than just 3 spacers on each side.

So you have a bodylift? Then I would install an additinal 1" motor mount lift. With a 1" MML you can get rid of the TC drop.

You can make your own TJ drop by adding some washers between teh TC skidplate and the frame.

Jeepn13 - good call, i do have some 2" square tubing lying around that would work awsome...

Nicolas - i do have a 1" bl. the only thing is i dont want to get the mml if it isn't going to solve my problem 100%, i may just cut my own t-case drop 1" or so out of my square tubing first and see if i can just suck up the belly a bit.

I had a 1" TC drop with about 4" of lift. After installing the MML and removing the TC drop there were no vibes.

hmmm good to know... what happened to your shift pattern? or do you have an automatic

I have an auto tranny.
With the MML the shifter is nearly in the same position where it was before you installed the 1" BL and the TC drop.
