In answer to your question, a tcase drop lowers your clearance in the middle. Why lift it if you're just going to drop it an inch? Others may know more reasons.

The way to eliminate the need for a transfer case drop is to put in a Slip Yoke Eliminator (SYE) kit and a new rear driveshaft.

RIP one good jeeper
The transfer case drop puts your shifting pattern right in the firin line of the tub and its difficult to shift. I remember when I installed mine, I hated my jeep. I drove my crappy bronco everywhere and even wheeled it because the jeep was so undriveable between the terrible lift springs and the transmission linkage. I had to yank the transmission into gear and even then it would pop out.
Luck Favours The Prepared
An SYE and CV shaft are a much better solution. You get your clearance back, the angles are better, and it's a little stronger set up.
Not to mention that, for me, it's extra temporary because I plan on doing a tummy tuck in a few months!
Hope that helps
