Im going to be putting on a 2 in sus lift on my jeep this week. I know the kit didnt come with a t-case lowering kit, but im sure im going to need one for the time being to keep the vibs out until i can afford a sye maybe someitme down the road. The question i have is, can i just use some pieces of 1in steel square tubing and some longer bolts that i have layin around for the lowering kit? kindof modeled after the skyjacker lowering kit that they rape you like $40 for? anyone ever do theirs this money saving way? or is there somehting special bout the skyjacker set up that i dont know about?
You certainly can. A lot of kits are basically nothing but that [1" spacers with 1 1/4" longer bolts]. I went with the $30 skyjacker kit because it's red and matches my Jeep. I am such a loser! Good luck with your lift....
sweet, thanks moxley. yeah i really considered just buyin the skyjacker lowering kit cause like you said the red matches good and looks cool, im just to strapped for cash right now so maybe some rustoleum will have to do! thanks again for the info!
just to add to that... a question of totally curiousity... is 2inch drop too much?
My Rubicon 2 1/2" lift comes with a 1" transfer case drop kit, if that helps.

I guess it all depends on your fan hitting your radiator with two inches of drop. If you wanted to get a jack and while your skid plate is down just the transfer case at two inches and look at the fan. You might be able to get away with it with an electric fan though. I gotta pull my transfer case out in a day or two so I'll let you guys know about the two inch drop.
