    Hey Kids.... Thought id share with you the new transfer case spacers I just made. I wanted something more stable than the little factory steel tubes everyone uses. I used a 1 1/4" piece of solid aluminum ( gotta keep the weight down ya know /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif ) I chose to increase the drop just a tad to help with already increased driveline angles. The solid spacer should add more stability to the crossmember and it wont flex or crush like a peice of box tube would. Here are some pics [​IMG] [​IMG]

    You can get aluminum at steel yards. I get all my stuff from a place up here called BBC Steel, they have a scrap yard that you can pick and choose and you only pay buy the pound. You might check with a local yard and see if they offer the same.

    Looks great, I made some too but I'm shipping them out to 1979 jimmy, but they are made of steel not aluminum.
