  • anyone with a full traction lift 3"

    this is a dumb question and i'm prob. going to smack my head after asking... but, the directions are terrible and ihave no clue which parts i'm supposed to use....anyway, they supply the hardware for the transfer case drop...was just wondering how it went together? does the conical washer go into that shim and both mounted between the body and the plate? kinda lost on how it goes together. if anyone has pics thatd be great. thanks

    Yes I am running that lift now with the monotube shocks. I didn't use the supplied TC drop spacers. I lifted the jeep, got the front end aligned and ended up with some vibes. Not bad but had some. I went to lowes and bought some washers (bunch of em). I started off with two washers between the skid and the frame (where the TC drop spacers would go) drove it, vibes were better but still there. Added 2 more washers. Almost gone. Ended up with 5 washers on each bolt and vibes are gone. Could have used the supplied drop spacers but my fix only dropped my TC about half of what the supplied spacers would have dropped it. My next mod is going to be adjustable control arms and CV driveshaft and get my TC back up. Maybe even tummy tucked!
    If you do use the supplied spacers, don't use the conical thingies. I called and got that info first hand. Those are used on different applications than a TJ. By the way, I just replaced the tires yesterday with Cooper 33" STT. Pic shows my old 32's.

      Hey rubicon thanks for the info, i appreciate it! i havent installed the drop yet, just getting an idea of what most of that hardware in that bag is for as the directions are the worst i've ever seen. did you happen to use the new bolts they supplied or just your old ones? IF you did use the ones they supplied, which set did you use? other than that..i think i have everythign else figured out...

      anyway nice lookin rig and thanks again!

        Um, the conical washers go between the bolt head and the bottom of the tcase skid. If you look at the skid itself the holes are tapered in for the conical washers. I would suggest using them, a flat bolt head on a beveled surface doesn't work as well as two of the same surfaces together.

          I don't exactly remember which set of the bolts I used. Just pull one out and hold an old one and a new one up to the light and compare the threads until you find the right set. That's what I did.
