how much t-case drop is too much

hey all,
this might be a hashed subject, but just try doing a search for t-case and all its many alternate names and topics.
so with new lift and all my goodies my driveline angle is out there, so want to make a t-case drop for like nothing, which isnt hard.....but how much is too much?

most market ones are 1" or so, would 1.5" be too much to make?
would that cause anything weird or bad to happen rotating everything up front that much when the t-case pivots down?

my skit plate is sitting at 32", so im not worried about clearance with 1.5" lower.

thanks for any help and info.

anyone else make there own, jsut planning on 1.5x2.5 rec. tubing and drilling it.

sean

Space the motor mounts up 1 to 1-1/2" up and drop the t-case 3/4 - 1".
I'm sure that 2" total drop is OK since there are lots of people using 1" MM with a 1" TC.
To tell the truth, once you do a SYE, you'll wonder why you've done without it.

should add

i do have the sye kit and cv driveshaft, but with alot of lift its a bit steep.

so how does raising the motor help with anything? wouldnt that make the angle change steeper?
thanks
Sean

When you use the MM lift, it lifts the front of the motor and aims the x-case down a little.
How much lift are you running that the SYE doesn't take care of it?

i'm pondering losing my TCSkid dropbracket as well, but I'm worried about the angle too. I'd love to gain extra ground clearance too but I don't want any vibes. I'm gonna wait on my TW CV and see what happens when i lose the skid. I've got a YJ SOA with 3.5" springs 2"Body and 37"MTRs

less lift....

with a flat belly will wheel way better, unless you like straightening and painting your cage.
