Removing tcase drop w/2.5\" lift OK or SYE?

Would like to get more clearance underneath so I thought of removing the 1" tcase drop that was installed with the 2.5" lift. Currently I have no wibes at all and all looks good. Would I have problems if I remove the drop? If I'll need an SYE after removing the drop then I might as well go SOA so I won't be SOL.

With your 33" tires, it would be fine to remove the t-case drop.

It's worth a try, just rember to remove the degree shims in the rear and shorten the skid plate bolts after it the spacer pucks are removed.

So you're saying that the current bolts that came with the drop kit would be too long to reuse? Also, if I understand right, I should watch that the tcase outputshaft angle is the same as the pinion angle, is that right?

With my 3in lift I put the Tcase drop in. Now I notice that shifting into 2, 4, and Rev takes a little more muscle and it shifts out of those gears a little to easy. Did you notice anything like this with your Tcase drop? I'm thinking of opening up the hole in the tub or removing the drop and going with the SYE.

the bolts will work they are just longer then they need to be, they will hang down about an inch, you could either cut down the bolts or get new one. Watch the rear drive shaft angle there might be some shims but in to correct it w/ the drop.

no you probably can't raise the transcase back up without getting vibration and eventual u-joint damage. doesn't matter what size tires you have- the vertical distance from axle to frame stays the same as the axle is attached to the springs and springs to frame. everything goes together. you need to go the SYE/CV option if you want to bring the transcase back up which you need for off-road clearance. if you have no vibes now and the angles are good and you don't wheel that radical then you are ok as-is...but if you got the "itch" to up-grade [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]......

I agree with Steve on this, I am currently removing my 1" drop with a 2.5" lift and placing a SYE on the case. Also the bolts on the YJ are the type that self center in the skid plate and don't hang down, they bolt up into the frame. They will have to be replaced.

Pierced,
you sound more like you have a problem with the shifter hitting the cutout in the access cover than is caused by tour T/C drop.

Let me add to this,I'm wanting to order the SYE kit so I can remove the tc lowering kit,can I also remove the rear end shims after the SYE?
