Bds 2" lift. Drive line vibe

Just a bds 2 inch lift. It gave me about 2 3/4. Now I have a drive line vibe. Here is a pic. Do I need to drop my t case?

At what speeds do you get the vibe? I have a 2 inch BB on my TJ and I am getting a vibration that is getting worse and worse.

motor mount lift, or low pro trans mount, or both, will fix this i bet.
otherwise washers between the trans skid and frame.

Question about that, doesn't that also drop the rubber transmission mount on the skid thus not supporting the transmission as much, or is the difference negligible?

its a new trans mount, that sits much lower than stock.
it will support the trans plenty.

personally, i would try a motor mount lift first, but either, or both would help.

truth, the real fix is a sye, dc driveshaft, and adjustable arms.
but i know, thats not what you want to hear.

Easiest solution is washers between skid and frame. I did this for about a week until I got my MML.

often, but not always, the easiest way to stop vibes is a motor mount lift.

the correct way to correct the issue is a slip yoke eliminator, a dc drive shaft, and adjustable control arms(or buying an lj rubicon).
