Re: T-case slips out of gear.

You either need a shifter sheet replaced under the shifter ball , or your sliding collar is shot on one side . If you've been running the 2lo mod , with just the center ball removed , that will do a lot of wear to the collar and cause them to pop out of gear ....

Check your longside tcase mount. If it's bent it can cause the shifter to rub the body opening and put is out of gear.

I had that problem with mine. Turned out the long arm twisted on me. I straightened it up and welded some heavy gauge plate on it. No problems since.

Re: T-case slips out of gear.

Sarge, you're noting the cogg/collar that will disengauge and engauge the front driveline in a worn state will cause the truck to magically slip out of 4x4 mode into 2wd mode?
Hmph. I've had that happen to me like 2~3 times.

Re: T-case slips out of gear.

Don't forget to check your oil levels...mine can tell me when its getting low by popping out...it is the only time it does it...also you might have a tweeked t-case arm casing binding under load, torn t-case mount...lots of things I believe.
