Sometimes its an issue, sometimes not.....Will the extra load on the back of the case cause any stress issues? I know some people mix and match poly and rubber bushings without thinking ahead. I stock application I would upgrade to poly motor mounts, and run poly mounts at the t-case. But since the leverage point is moved further away from the centerline of the truck, I would use rubber mounts at the new crossmember ends, to allow enough flex, to match the flex of the poly motor mounts. This will reduce the stress on the tranny and t-case.

Hope I wasnt too confusing, sometimes I know what I want to say, just dont know how to say it.

and I have 2 skid plates...one is a belly plate and the other is a simple cross with a small skid...

my spare trans/t-case was sitting up on end so I could use is as a mock up...I will use longer t-case bolts and shortened suzuki sidekick rear trailing arms with the rubber grommetted ends the ends fit perfect into the c channel that I have to mount onto the inside of the frame rails.. I will drill multiple sets of holes so that I can raise or lower my t-case setup...I will be cutting out the center hump in the floorboards to do a 2" drivetrain lift after I make the raised motor mounts...fan shroud, hoses, and exhaust....

I want to be able to bolt a 1/4 in skidplate onto the bottom of the frame with recessed bolts....none of the stock crap hanging down....besides...body lifts suck

On my '82 I used turbo 350 transmission mount on each side ot the transfer mount next to the frame so that it would be stronger and easily replaced. Dont know if that made any sense...... Looks good and great job fabbin!
