OME Transfer Case Drop

Author: ThePhantum

OME transfer case dropPart 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.

DONE! Whew...I'm 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 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, an interim and some after shots.
