Think that is good or should I add more?
I would think about adding a gusset on the top side of the arm going to the t-case. That rectangular tubing is going to see a lot of stress once that 165lb tcase starts trying to bounce. The poly bushings could be an issue as well since they are going to see quite a bit of twisting and side loading.

This is the mount that I made for mine - all of the load is is transferred straight down into the cross member, which doesn't allow for any twist or flex at the poly bushings.

Maybe I will add another frame side mount to my crossmember, so it mounts to the frame at 3 points to help support things.

Those 3 holes on the driver side of the transfer case are for a torque mount. I would build a mount off those to the frame with a bushing in there and then it should be good to go. I wouldnt trust just the one side mount though.

I don't think there is enough room to use it, unless I can come up with a easy way to make more room. I don't like any ideas I come up with. Seems like the all will be impossible to install or make it really hard to put the case in.

I got this kit for my t-case too. Still not sure if I will have room to install it or not ... I can't speak for Kyle but I don't have the kind of room you do under there ... and mine is clocked up so the mount will have to be modified to begin with ... but at least I have something to work with ...

Well, guess I should update this. Took it out wheeling last weekend and broke it again. I ended up splitting the yoke on the front output of the case, apparently you can remove too much material
When the yoke broke it took out my front twin stick shifter linkage.

Gonna run 1330 joints now and I am gonna try and fit a cv in there so I can use all my travel.

Breakage



Gotta get it ready soon, going south in a couple weeks. Need to make a skid and a drive shaft.


Oh, and it runs way better now.

Problem we have with running the cv style shafts is that we have short tailshaft c6s so there isn't room for it next to the trans.

Alright, did some looking and found I can fit a cv in my front shaft, so that should help me get some strength. I have 3, 1310 cv ranger shafts so I ordered a np 205 1310 cv yoke so now I just need to shorten a shaft and I will be all set.


Also, I ordered my steel to build my exo today. Decided to go with ASTM A500 grade B structure steel pipe, with a 1.25 ID, .140 wall, 1.660 OD. Should be just fine and the price was right. Gonna start in 2 weeks.

Front drive shaft made and Installed, swapped out wedge bushings for better pinion angle, fixed tcase shifter, made a skid plate frame, just need to skin it with some 3/16, and put longer shocks in the rear along with some shock hoops.

Pics

Skid


Shocks




If the longer shocks work out, ill get some new, better ones as these ones are whipped

All I have left to do is flex it out and check for bind....need to find someone close with an rti ramp.....

What size shocks are those? I have a set of BDS lift shocks that were on my truggy for 3 trips. I can't use them on the yota so I have no use for them, I'll make you a screaming deal if they will work and you want them.
