Distance between TCase Yoke and Cross Member

What's a good rule of thumb on how much distance must be left between cross members and/or skid plates and the transfer case (particularly the yoke where contact at speed could be catastrophic).

I have no idea how much the transfer case moves around. The transmission mount is not very rigid so I assume it moves quite a bit. An inch? more? less?

An inch should be plenty.

I was surprised how much it moves. I had to re-clock my Atlas because of it hitting the body on the driver side. My hand slides in there now.. I agree that an inch should do it.
