    If you look closely at the crossmember that suppports the t-case, you will notice that the black rubber thing is bolted to the crossmember. I put a new one on about two months ago.

    Dirk,

    Please re-read Mike's original post.


    "side" of the transfercase.......Not bottom.


    Rich is correct, it is a vibration counter-weight found on 95-97 models only.

    I presume this is because the far superior 93 does not need such an adaptation.

    With its battle tested tranny. :D
