clocking zj transfer case

zj cases hang too low, I know iron rock has a clocking template for 50$ but I want to know if anyone else has done it.
I'm gonna use one of the cases I have laying around to make a template from plywood, then redrill the clocked holes . bolt the plywood up and drill clocked holes. Test fit it on the case studs before drilling the tranny flanges
Any thoughts?

Correction. 242's and 249's sit too low.

Get a 231 and you will be fine. My 231 sits well above my Clayton cross member. I've been wheeling it for years without a skid plate.

I've already swapped in a 231. My zjs a 93 with v8 so the longer driveshaft you would have to clearance the Clayton cross member.
I'm building a similar 3 piece x member to claytons but with everything tucked a little tighter. I may even push it back to get under the CV joint.
But with another 2-3" I can get a true flat belly

Flat Won't happen without some significant floor massage work.

My 231 is as high as it gets without beating the floor to death.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

Got any pictars? id like to atleast keep it flat from bottom of rear crossmember to front cross member if possible

to me it looks like it might work and make quite a bit of difference
factory...

clocked 7* or so


the floorboard may "get massaged" for a full clock if necessary

If you need to clock the t-case then its time to scrap the zj and start building a buggy.

If only..........but, I figure we lift these things for ground clearance and bigger tyras, so if I can drill 6 holes and net 2" of GC then its worth it. I gotta replace my tranny output seal anyways

I'll mess with that before I finish weld my crossmembers.

why? flat belly is where it is at no matter what you wheel. one less thing to hang up, and as low as they hang on ZJ's why not clock it up.

and just so everyone that finds this thread or searches "249 vs. 231" or "242 vs. 231".......this is why a 231 is beneficial over a 249 or 242.
249 left, 231 right.

and the second pic is of the linkage i made to get rid of the factory garbage
