Transfer Case Drop
of the OME lift I installed
on my 2002 Jeep TJ included
transfer case spacers. This keeps driveline angles close to spec
without the need for a slip yoke eliminator by lowering the t-case skid
which in turn lowers the transfer case.
The t-case drop was a
piece of cake…ok maybe not…but only because it
was late and Dale and I were tired. As you can see, the install is
pretty simple…support the skid
plate with a floor jack and remove the six bolts that secure the pan to
the frame. Then lower the jack until there is enough clearance to get
the spacers between the frame and the plate, install the longer bolts
with the tapered cone washers and tighten it all up to spec.
tired just thinking about it now...
Since we had not
gotten the new tires yet, the old wheels had to go
on temporarily. Then we took it for a test drive and aside from the
alignment and t-bars being off, there were no problems...it rode just
fine. I then had it aligned and the t-bars dialed in the following
Friday. Then I put the new tires on it that evening.
Here's a before,
and some after shots.
