    so i'm fabbin my dual transfercase crossmember this week probably or next week. anyway just wondering if i need some sort of poly bushing there or if i should just bolt the cases straight to a crossmember, and if i need bushings, what should i get, something generic? I figure thinner is better, more ground clearance. just trying to get some ideas before i start. does anyone have any insight that might help me along the way?

    Jeep body bushings work good for me I also added a fender washer to each one.

    u deffenently need bushings, unless u are runnig solid motor mounts. use the same type bushing on the t-casses as u have on the eng mounts. poly on both or rubber on both. i would mix allows different rates of movement & can cause tranny cases to crack. i used 4 factory style poly bushings for mine. i modified 2 factory crossmembers for my doubler.
