i have a brand new dealer lifted Fx4, they used a procomp lift kit and it has 35inch mickey thompsons.
when i take off hard, if the wheels break traction, im fine, but if the rear end hops, the transfer case smashes up against the floor!

heres a video i took to show what happens...


they (dealership and lift installers) (its all under warranty) do not think traction bars will solve issue!

there is very little clearance between floor of vehicle and transfer case, less than the mechanic from lift installers has seen before...
all components are installed properly and even procomp was consulted, and has never heard of this particular issue!

i am hoping someone out there has ideas that may have been overlooked

The transmission mount should be upgraded from factory rubber to a polyurethane mount. I have seen this problem on lifted Jeep Wranglers, upgraded mount really helped.
They installed a "raptor" mount to replace the fx4 mount...its a pretty meaty part...

it didnt help...still bangs...
just as a test the mechanic jammed a rubber block between transfer case and floor...no banging...
so we know its this and not u-joint binding...or hitting some other place.

Really? Do you have blocks? Do you get bad wheel hop? I get the wheel hop really bad and then it bangs up through center console like its underneath, Sometimes on highway if I mash it does it too.
Fox coilovers in front and 5" inch blocks in the rear with fox shocks. I mash mine all the time and have experienced wheel hop.
