Have you checked the measurements of the holes on you 2000? I think the skid changed at some point. I am not sure if the change affected the hole placement. My drawing was for my 05.

As for how much it extends your drive shaft. Measure the vertical distance from your axle yoke to your tc yoke ("b" in the pic below). Then measure your horizontal distance of the two ("a" in the pic). Then use the Pythagorean theorem to give you your current drive shaft length.


To find your new length add how much you are raising your mount to the vertical distance "b" then solve for "c".

TSEJEEPERS,
What size piece did you use to drop the skid down? I have a tc drop kit from a YJ but the tube wall is just 1/8". Anyone think that is too thin?

I used 1" x 2". Not sure what the thickness was for sure. 1/8" would work but remember mine does not hold anything but the skid up. The transmission is held up with a separate cross member.

YES. The location of the mounting holes in the frame is different between the 97-02 and the 03+ TJ.

This means Scotch 740s dimensions DO NOT work for 97-02!!!

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.
