To clock the tcase, it requires an adapter ring or drilling new holes into the rear of the transmission (not always an option).

You can see the mounting holes in a circle on the back of the transmission in this picture:
Iron Rock makes a clocking kit IIRC or it might be Kevin's Offroad. There have been a few people that have clocked it for more clearance though, drilling new holes

Jeep is looking great. You gonna move it once you get the rear shaft ? Maybe get some flex test shots!

I'll probably "test flex" it on a trail once I get everything broken in. Not much for mall shots anymore haha.

Got the transfer case all secured, speedo sensor in place, front driveshaft installed, and crossmember re-installed this evening.

Going to spend some time tomorrow buttoning up as much small stuff as I can so when the driveshaft gets here its bolt and go.

Plan is steering linkage, fluids, washer bottle, and clean up the mess I made on the shift bezel.

The 231 sits higher than the frame rails without clocking it. In fact I think there are only a few inches between it and the pan now.

I don't feel its necessary and the couple inches doesn't justify the asspain. There are things hanging lower than the tie rod.

Its more than just flipping it, the clearance with the high steer arm is an issue. I think your fab guy ran into that too didn't he? You can space it but i dont feel like building spacers and its more work than its worth IMHO.

I would have run the tie rod up and the high steer arms instead but I don't think its going to clear the suspension.

Drag link. The pitman arm fought pretty good, but I got it off and reamed.

That looks like a solid steering setup! Is your track bar mounted to the frame yet?
