The reason I ask is I was looking at Barnes 2" drop TT, and I didn't know if it was somehow attached to the tub and if I'd then have 1.25" of space between the case and the skid. But that doesn't really make sense...

No, that makes no sense.

that usually happens when I just sit here thinking. And I don't think I could get away with raising the t case 2" without getting vibes.

You'll be fine with the early model skid until you get into the fun stuff. I doubt you'd be able to tell the difference at URE. The rear axle should be a bigger priority for you.

Belly clearance and cheap do not belong in the same sentence.

And if the t-case was attached to the body, you might as well have no body mounts. Just think about it.

1/4 inch smaller ring gear than a Dana 44
Slightly smaller shafts and plenty of available lockers
And many have taken a beating under xjs
For a Dana 35 price

But I still have to convert it to coils, which I don't feel like doing. Jake has a 44 whenever I get the money.
