Tcase Movement ALOT

I installed my 4 inch lift and this included spacers for the tcase skidplate (crossmember) about 1.5'' and i was wheelin yesterday and got stuck, when i gave it gas to power out my tcase violently wobbled causeing my shifter to swing side to side pretty fast, ive never noticed this before but im not sure if its usual or not. i wish i could go into more detail but thats all i got. anyone know why this is or if its bad?


Cj's are like spoiled children, they use up every penny you earn and never seem appreciative. But no matter what happens you still love them. :]

Well if the motor moves a lot when revved that's where the issue is, motor mounts. The T-case is connected to the motor through the tranny, so when the motor moves, so does the T-case.

Don't forget to look at the trans mount and torque arm, if you have one.

Yeah when my tranny mount was shot my tcase was sitting terribly wrong and basically resting directly on the skid. This also caused my engine to sit WAY towards the driver's side, and the air cleaner (on the mc2100) to sit on top of the brake booster. (... and on and on it goes ...)

When I pulled the mount out it was basically mush old rotted rubber. Put the new mount in, the engine went back to where it was supposed to go, it left the space between the skid and the tcase.. and also my jeep stopped lurching right when I let off the gas.

.. all for a $10 tranny mount.
