Just upgraded to a 4:1 tcase gearing. Wanting to beef up my transmission/transfercase mount. Im still running the stock skidplate. Cant really find a heavy duty mount that bolts to the stock skid. Im up for building a new skid and making a crossmember but im just wanting to see what yall have built so I can get an idea. Thanks.

95YJ 2.5L auto tranny, np231 w/teralow kit, SYE kit, stock drivetrain. 4"RE lift w/37" bajaclaws. Wheeling only rig. FYI

Thnis is what im using:

Jeep YJ Skid Plates

'93 4.0L AX-15, 8.8...

Cheaper then making it myself...

I cut the stock mount from the stock skid and welded it into the Barnes skid.

Still need to paint it...

I used Novaks mount with my adapter for my CJ7's np435/D300. I really like it, well put together. Uses stock skid mounting holes and came with hardware too.

It is the 3", if I went any smaller I would need a BL, or floor pan mod...
I suppose with the 2" you could mount the trans mount directly to the skid, but you will have the bolts hitting anything you bottom out on (rocks)....

When i had a teralow case I was able to do a completely flat skid without a body lift. Made a tranny mount just like Stanf. Had to cut a small section of the tub reinforcement that was in the way and that was it.


that was with a yj. 2.5l with 2in MML, ax5, and teralow


Then the doubler happened and my floor suffered.
