Can I cut this off?

Mocking up my exhaust and could use the extra clearance at my transfer case. What if any thing is bolted to the two holes in the photos below in the plate on my D20 transfer? I don't remember anything being bolted there, but its been a while since the tear down. If they go unused, can i cut the plate back to make more room for my exhaust?

Mounting point for the anti-torque mount? (If 78's had such a thing) How does it feel when you romp on it? Any knocking or klunking or weird vibes? If not run it for a while to make sure, then cut it off, if you really feel the need. Good way to ruin a nice case, though.

Me? I'd find a way to not cut the case.

I have to agree with crusty75, its there for a reason. Maybe someone can post some pictures of their unit and shed some light on what the mount might be used for.

One of those holes had a bolt in it from the looks of it's threads. Maybe an exhaust hanger?

If it's for sure the exhaust hanger spot, I would only cut enough to clear and still use it. One shop forgot to put my tranny exhaust hanger on and the system kept coming loose at the manifold until I spotted the missing hanger.
