Tj tcase linkage problems

Hey guys,

My buddy has a 98 Tj Sport, 4" procomp, and 1 inch body lift. The tcase keeps popping out of 4wd low. He has adjusted the linkage as much as possible but doesn't know what to do next.. I think its hitting the tub or something. Anybody else have this problem? THanks?

Re: Tj tcase linkage problems

Sounds like he is either too far away from the T-case now becasue of the body lift, or his shifter may be moving far enough to get into low but hitting the tub and not fully engaging. I would take off the console and take a look. If its hitting, maybe he can trim a bit so it will fully engage, or if the linkage is too short because of the lift, maybe he can make a piece that is longer? These are just shots in the dark,,,,, hopefully gives him some place to start...

Aftr did the lift on my TJ, I couldn't get it to even go into 4wd, the shifter wouldn't move, before I had a chance to really look into it, I apparently went down my bumpy road enough times which apparently jarred it loose, it must have been in a temporary bind, its worked great ever since.
