4wd problem

i went out today to do some wheeling and when i went to put it into four low i wouldnt stick. The light would come on and then the shifter would pop out of four low and back into neutral. I eventually got it to stick but do you guys have any ideas?

yes except for a 1 inch body lift, a throttle body spacer, and a 1 inch motor mount lift.

if he didn't install the shifter bracket then you will need too...otherwise you can get a bracket from advance adapters that relocates it off the body

I've got one that I ordered from Rough Country if you need it. The bracket is very easy to install, it only takes about 10min with some simple tools. I took it off after I installed my SYE. PM me if you want it.

Rather than go for the bracket, just get underneath and adjust the linkage. The linkage rod is just not pulling the linkage far enough to fully engage 4Lo, which is easily adjustable. There's just a bolt that sets the rod's position so loosen the bolt, position the linkage so it pulls it a bit more, then tighten the bolt. It's pretty intuitive once you look at the linkage.
