Default rough country 6.5 inch lift transfer case drop.

Hello there I have a 1991 jeep cherokee 4.0 laredo. And I orderd the 6.5 inch rough country long arm lift kit. So I started putting it on and I got the back all done and the front all torn apart. And now it says I have to do the tranfer case drop bracket. But I accidently orderd the wrong one.. so I was wondering if I could just skip that step and do it last?? Thanks.

I havent done a 6.5" lift, but a 4.5..I would say yes you can do that last. As far as I can remember the only thing it does is make the driveline angles closer. I guess it might make setting up the control arm lenghts harder since the transfer case will be coming down...Most will say you need a SYE.

Can u use a t-case drop with the extra brackets for the crossmember that come with that kit? When I out my rc la in there was an extra support that kind of wraps around the subframe and bolts to the same holes as the cross member didn't look like it would work with a tcase drop.

at 6.5" lift your gonna need more than just a 1" T-case drop.
