Had some buddies help out with tearing the t-case out for the SYE. Hopefully I can get them to come back and give a hand getting it back together. Back is feeling pretty sore!

Skid is in! Welded up all the holes that are in the pan for the automatic transmission. About 15" before pan and 17.25" from ground to bellypan on 2.5" springs after.

After having the pan on and off about 5 times it now clears everything. I had to trim the front lip of the pan to clear the front drive shaft at full droop. Also had to replace the four bolts holding the trans mount to the transmission with a lower profile head. The stock bolts made contact with the pan.

Tire just coming off ground



Pan trimmed to clear d-shaft.
