Lift question and electrical question...

Hey guys, been trolling around here reading. Great board, great info. I have 2 questions for you to test your mettle on today =)

1) I have a lifted '95 YJ (springs, shackles) the transfer case was lowered to keep the driveline angles within reason. My problem is that my stickshift lever is way low also now =(
I have looked around for an extension kit for this lever, does anyone make one? if not, what have you people done to overcome the long stretch down to you gearshifter??

2) I have an electrical problem too =( here are my symptoms... When my lights are turned off, and i step on the brake pedal, my cluster lights turn on, as well as the brake lights.
If the lights are turned on, the 3rd brake light is continuosly on , even if im not on the brake pedal. It does light up brighter when i step on the brakes though. My left turn signal bulb's burn out really fast...

any help on where to begin looking at this mess would be appreciated =)

2 - you have a bad ground somewhere. I don't know where on a YJ to look though.

Re: Lift question and electrical question...

I agree with Will... (how is that for a change Will!?)

Look for a bad ground first, then look for wires burned or pinched together somewhere.
(Probably under the dash)

A friend of mine has symptoms very similar, and it turned out some wiring had been caught in the e-brake pedal mechanicals...
