For use with 2 inch or larger suspension. Kit reduces drive line angles by lowering the transfer case with a 1 inch spacer between the frame rail and transfer case skid plate. Rust resistant black powder coat finish. Predrilled mild steel tubing spacers. Grade 8 zinc plated mounting bolts. Made in the USA.
Because of washers already welded to the bottom of my 1988 YJ frame rails, the actual spacing amounts to greater that one inch. The spacing was so great that my shift lever base collided with the floor, making it impossible to shift into reverse without cutting a bigger hole in the floor. I ended up just using stacks of washers and putting the spacers on a shelf in the shop. I kept the conical bolts supplied with the kit as they are probably worth the cost of the kit anyway -and this specialty hardware is hard to come by. The max spacing I found workable was less than 3/4". My jeep is a 258ci with the Peugeot 5spd manual tranny. Adding additional spacing did greatly reduce drive line vibration on my spring-over conversion.
Two questions; for my 2004 TJ Rubicon, is this a necessary item for a 2" lift (spring spacers w/ shocks)? ...and, by installing this, do I loose 1" of my 2" lift?

Bud, the Skyjacker Transfer Case Lowering Kit does not take away from your lift kit, but will take away some of your ground clearance. It is recommended to use. Thanks for the question!

Hi msail32, This Skyjacker Transfer Case Lowering Kit provides a 1" drop and will compensate for the drive shaft angle on lifts up to 2.5". Thank you for your inquiry.
