I Did the TC drop thing for a while and hated it, it looks odd, it screwed up the exhaust, and it got caught on everything. one good thing about it is the TC drop spacers have the same (or close enough) bolt pattern as the rear bump stops, so with some longer bolts can be use the space the bump stops down.
im looking at it now what kind of trouble did you have installing it??

You lie on your back under the jeep and use an angle grinder to cut the stock output shaft, it takes a few minutes and the sparks it throws off are a bit painful. And if you don't drill the hole perfectly strait it can be a pain to get the bolt in to it. But aside from that the rest of the install is easy.

can't you just take it out to cut it and drill the whole ?

yeah, if you pull the transfer case out of the jeep it, its up to you how you do it, and there is plenty of room to work on it under the jeep so i didn't see the need to pull it, but if i have to do it again i'll try pulling it.

gonna keep it in mind because i do have access to a lift so i might take it out to make an easier install or just work from underneath
