    Got up under my truck re routing my cb coax cable. I noticed this thing hanging down from the transfer case. It's held on by two bolts but seems to have no purpose. It looks like it's hanging mighty low and I'm afraid it might get caught on something on the trails and tear some junk up. I want to take it off but figured I'd see what ya'll have to say first. What is it?

    I have wondered what that thing is or a while. Hopefully someone will know! I would guess it's something to help eliminate vibration coming from your t case.

    Transfercase mount, if you were to have a tcase skid. just supports it like a brace...:confused: It's useless, I don't have it on my truck.
