Question No 4wd after Lift / SYE / Mega Short Shaft Fitting

I've had a Rugged Ridge Mega Short SYE / Propshaft fitted to my 1997 TJ 4l - now have lost 4wd. Vehicle has also had Rough Country 4" X-series lift kit installed.

Linkage seems OK and appears to be transfer case internal problem. Lever won't move out of 2wd .

Anyone had the same problem or suggest what the problem and solution might be.

No 4 wheel

When I got my TJ back from a RE3.5 lift, when wheeling and it wouldn't go into 4 wheel also. Back to the shop that did install, and it turned out to be in the transfer-case shifting linkage. Was an easy fix. All good now. You might want to recheck your linkage for complete movement. It's kind of buried up in the tunnel next to TC.

Sounds like your linkage on the t-case is inverted. Been there.

Away from home and vehicle at present TnDz TJ so can't look. Am I correct in my understanding that you reckon the TC linkage might be 180 deg out ? If so presume easily corrected ?
After lift / new SYE / HD propshaft initially went into 4wd high ok but not low. Now not able to get out of 2wd. Shift lever moves a little then solid and unable to engage.

It is an easy fix.... If that is the issue. Here is a pic...

The linkage arm off the t-case should be pointing down and slightly forward in 2WD. If its 180 out, it will pointing up and back and will hit the case when you try to engage 4WD( rotating wrong direction as well). Just pull the 13mm nut and invert the arm as duplicated in the pic and you will be golden .
