So I just got my Rough Country 4" lift kit delivered:D and I was wondering about the transfer case spacers. How much extra stress will this put on the tranny and motor with the extra angle? I dont wanna spend much more money on this as I'm in school so trying to keep my expenses down but I dont wanna sacrifice the reliability of the motor or tranny. It's a 4.0L 5spd manual. 1993. Thanks!!

a lot of people run them with no problem. im not a big fan of losing ground clearance tho. i went with a slip yoke eliminator and cv driveshaft instead. if you have the stock motor mounts ,they flex a lot.

If you have the factory driveline, you need to run it or risk binding the driveshaft up. I know with my 2.5" kit I got almost 4" out of it and still needed to order spacers so with your kit, I would run it.

ok, not too worried about ground clearance. I just wanted to make sure that the spacers were safe to use in the long run. Jeep is a daily driver so I need it to work lol
