Looks like a wheelin' machine. I like the t-case skid plate, looks good.

i tried rotating the t-case flat but that put it through the floor about a foot at the pasengers feet. i also thought about flipn a 241 driver side drop over reworkn the oil pickup and running it flat on the passenger side. but then id also have to rework and build some funky t-case levers.

so what ended up is t-case skid and boxed tranny crossmember. there isnt a factory crossmember in the entire rig. i routed the exhaust throough there and its rubber mounted to the other crossmember.

still more boxing and finishing on the t-case skid, but it is servicable now and servs its purpose also gives me lower jacking point. it only clears the t-case by a 1/2 inch. the yoke coming off the t-case has clearnced itself when the tranny tweaks in its rubber mounts.

sorry im rambleing, better get to bed.

have a good one
