High clearance trans mount?

Anybody running the high clearance trans mount from Rock 4X Fabrication? Or anybody have pictures of what they did to get rid of drivline clearance issues? I didn't have any problems untill after I did my Toy axles and shackle reversal setup. Any ideas?

I'm sure it is a proven design and I'm not trying to knock the concept but I'd be worried about slamming the bottom brackets on rocks and moving the tranny out of alignment or bending/breaking bolts.

Its probably just me but I've got a thing about thought bolts to stuff wrapped around the frame. I've ground off more bolt heads on my hardcore 4x4 skid plate that I really hate the concept when you have to drop the skidplate, and have to use vice grips on the bolt heads because you can't fit a wrench on them anymore.

I'd buy this in a minute to save me fab time if there weld on tabs to the outside of the frame instead of the through bolt concept. keeping everything tucked up out of the way.

Just looking at the design a little differently.

No offence taken But heres the Kicker, the kit was made for a complete 100% bolt in application for the guy that does not have a weder. But if you have a welder the top frame bracket can be welded in place leaving nothing to hang down, AND the x-member is still removable

I know Bradzuki cut his out and posted pics I will see if I can find them for you. I do recommend adding a couple tabs to the front where it is cut off by the t-case long arm, it all depends on your gearing and wheeling style I suppose, I know many have done nothing but cut it out and left it.

I too would like to see pictures with the crossmember cut out. How thick is the mount and what are the odds of it bending?

I run the mount and it works great I beat on it pretty hard too and havent bent it yet . stock 1.3 4.16 case toy axles and 35" claws redlined and wheel hoppin most of the time haven't even had a bolt come loose yet . I would highly reccomend anything Scott makes his products are top notch.

[QUOTE I've ground off more bolt heads on my hardcore 4x4 skid plate that I really hate the concept when you have to drop the skidplate, and have to use vice grips on the bolt heads because you can't fit a wrench on them anymore.[/QUOTE]

This may be a solution: When ever I mount anything to the bottom of the frame and/or where a bolt head may be exposed to rocks, etc. I use "carriage bolts". Yes you do need to have a "square" hole to key/lock them in place, but drill the hole and get out the plasma cutter or a file. I have used this method of attaching crossmembers and skid plates for years and have yet to have any problems with removal. A bonus is that they have a round flat head, rather than a hex.makes for a smoother underbelly!

I have some pix to demonstrate............but they are too large and I haven't a clue how to compress. If anybody wants to volunteer I can email them to ya. Any takers?

Hope this is helpful!!

Here's a couple pics. of the install.
First with the old x-member still there.


Next with the old x-member removed.


Since these pics. were taken I have removed the bolts/mounts from the bottom of the frame & just welded the upper mounts to the frame. The x-member is still removable via bolts to the upper mounts. Anything coming from Scott is top-notch. I've went through 3 t-cases but the tranny mount hasn't budged.

Brad.
