Hello fellow jeep owners, im New to the forum and have a issue I need advice on. I recently bought a TJ and when u try to put it into 4 lo it pops out unless u hold a little pressure onthe transfer case shifter. Wondering if mabye the linkage needs adjusted? Any help on this is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys
Yep just the linkage. Mine used to pop out sometimes if I was bouncing on rocks or vibrating a lot. Adjusted the linkage by loosening the bolt and sliding the handle forward a little then tightening it back up.
You can only get to it from underneath. Here's a photo of the linkage with the bolt you need to loosen to perform the adjustment, use a 1/2" wrench on that bolt head. Once you get it pulled back in so it can pull the t-case all the way into 4Lo, tighten the snot out of that bolt so it can't slip.

Well I just got a chance to roll under the jeep and adjust the transfer case shifter, didn't even hafto take the skid pan off it was easy to get to. Adjusted it and tried it out, works like New! Thanks again guys for the advice, Jeff
