Is there any benifit/ concern in running transfer case drop with SYE kit installed?
I thought the SYE kit eliminates need for transfer case drop? I had a guy telling me I should put transfer case drop back on because the angle of my shift linkage looked strange (can't engage 4lo). And my rear suspension seemed to be "sagging".
It's a 2006 TJ, 4 inch suspension lift, SYE and cv shaft, rear adjustable control arms.
The linkage sucks to get working right after lifting best thing to do would be buy a Novak cable shifter and get rid of all that crap you will never have a problem agin and no the whole point of the SYE is to get rid of the TC drop and make things right .
Did you have to adjust your shift linkage after the SYE install?
I just put in an Alloy SYE in my 2005. Using the SYE, all my shift linkage remained in the stock location and functioned normally. So just installing a SYE shouldn't have any affect on the selector linkage... Unless you put it back together wrong...
Having said that, jeep used a bunch of plastic bushings all thru the selector linkage. Any one of those breaking or falling out will result in bad or no engagement of various 4 and 2 wheel drive modes.
One thing I learned was a lot of the SYE kits are actually made by the same manufacturer. My Alloy box was also marked Rough Country and OMIX-ADA. So I doubt that the SYE install caused your 4lo engagement problem.
Horse: the original off road rig.
Jeep: just as fun and no stall to muck.
