Question '97 TJ 4WD issue

I have a TJ 4.0 automatic with a 2.5" Rancho lift. Rancho said that a SYE was not needed for that size lift. I'm having problems with the 4WD. Sometimes, it slips out of 4WD. Sometimes, the transfer case linkage has to be convinced manually to go into gear. I've heard that there is a plate to make the pin stay in place. If so, does anyone know what it's called and who sells them? If that isn't the best option, I'm open to any ideas. thanks

At times lifting the vehicle can cause the TCase linkage to get out of whack. Afterall it is attached firmly to the frame. There is a measure of adjustment that can be made on it however. There are a couple of adjusting screws on the linkage itself when you get up there and look at it. Just loosen one up and slide it on the linkage shaft a little until it looks more comfortable.

If you are looking for a more permanent fix with it you then Skyjacker makes a bracket that affixes the linkage more directly to the TCase.
