Request - neutral safety switch picture please.

I have been having an ongoing problem of my front drive shaft hitting the neutral safety switch on my 3 speed automatic. There is a 3.5 inch rubicon express lift on the jeep. If anyone can post a picture of the distance they have between their drive shaft and the neutral safety switch that would be greatly appreciated! I would really like to fix this problem.

Thanks!

Are you running the OE (skinny) automatic version of the front driveshaft? The front driveshaft that is used with a manual transmission is too wide (fat) for use with the automatic.

Is your Jeep lifted? If so, have you centered the front axle? I'm not sure, but it seems I remember this could be an issue with what you're dealing with.

My front drive shaft is 2.5" in diameter. I'm not sure how to tell if it's the OE driveshaft. I do have am automatic so I'm not sure why there would be a manual driveshaft in it. And yes, I have a 3.5 RE lift, we have adjusted the track bar to try and center the front axle but that seems to have done no good.

It has been 3+ years since I last saw my TJ I switched to that transmission which required I swap to the smaller diameter driveshaft. So I am not 100% sure but 2.5" seems like it may be the larger diameter shaft meant for a manual transmission.

Can someone with a 97-99 32rh auto transmission measure their front driveshaft diameter?

I have a stock auto shaft in the shop I'll measure tomorrow and get back to you, I agree 2.5 dia sounds like a manual shaft. The auto one is very small dia.

Ok thanks! That does help! Also real quick, how much room do you have between your driveshaft and neutral safety switch?
