After last weekend at the mounds my trans skid was toast so i found another one. I ditched my tcase drop spacers and built a tcase drop into the skid this time.


And here is what i cut out pf the skid to lower the tcase

I was looking at the new skid i bought and just thought to myself maybe i can lower the trans right in the skid. That way i wont lose ground clearance and its almost 3/4" of drop and it drives super smooth!

Nice fix. Looking good. I guess I should update my build thread soon. I have a TON of updates for it, especially when I get the axle done and in (just waiting for some sloppy welds ground down, sanding, and paint). We will have to go out and get some wheeling in when they are both done.
