Who wants to build a flat tcase skid or has already made one?
I would just check your linkage, pinion angle wouldn't have anything to do with the linkage making noise. What kind of dent?BackCountryMud said:I was thinking about it, because my skid had a giant dent in it and I think it's causing my linkage to make a clinking sound because it threw the pinion angle off maybe?
Ouch. Haha that's what it is there for. I wouldn't doubt the linkage is messed. Heck I completely replaced mine with all new everything except the Rods and fixed a ton of stuff and still get a popping noise on occasion. The important thing is it works. I'm gona be going to a cable style in the future when I can drop that kind of change. Prob when I do this tt.BackCountryMud said:Slipped off a rock and happened to land on a giant pointy rock on the skid lol
I ran a Rokmen skid before. I knew that I wanted to go flat so that defined that requirement. I noticed how much space was wasted between the drivetrain and skid. So, I measured the height difference between the stock transmission mount I was running and the UCF LoPro mount and looked to see if I could lower the it down anymore without hitting. I determined how low I could go and cut down some angle iron to the appropriate height and tacked it on. I cut out the sections so that the front tranny mount bracket bolt heads could recess into them. I test fitted and it was perfect, with the lowest point of the t-case barely 1/4" off the skid. When all was said and done, my skid gained 2" over the Rokmen skid and I didn't raise the t-case at all. I essentially made better use of the space between the drivetrain and the skid. Plus, do to the design of UCF's mount (and combined with my stiffer Brown Dog motor mounts), the t-case hardly torques over when on the gas so I don't have to worry about movement and interference occurring anywhere.How did you decide on the dimensions and build of that raised piece. I don't see it being more difficult than measuring cutting drilling welding an testing fit a long the way. Obviously keeping the piece lower will keep the tcase lower as well.
Yep, it was my product idea. :thumb:So you did use the under cover fab lo pro mount? Okay cool.
Nice :thumb: and your are correct duh. I knew that I just don't always think through when I am typing. I'll have to look into that too. Maybe do a little cutting.Imped said:Yep, it was my product idea. :thumb:
As for the drive shaft, are you referring to full droop? Plenty of room. If you've got a factory auto trans skid, then that's what's giving you problems, not the t-case skid.
