just an FYI...you dont always "need" a cable shifter. I have a 4" RK SA kit with UCF ultra high clearance w/ lopro, 1" body and motor mount lift and I shift like butter... just my 2 cents...could all be in the installation...

Installation has nothing to do with it. Regardless of if I or Joe Schmoe installs that skid, it's raising the drivetrain the same amount. Do me a favor and go take a picture of a stock TJ's linkage. Now go take a picture of yours and post them up. If you can't see that yours is heavily binding then you may need to have your eyes checked. I ran the stock linkage with my flat skid for a while so I'm not arguing that it can't work. Putting the bars and bushings of the stock linkage under such stress will take a tole on them and at some point, you'll experience issues. It's just a matter of time. A single cable doesn't bind and doesn't care where the t-case is in relation to the frame or tub. Yes, it's pricey but it's one of the things that is unanimously worth it, no matter who you ask.

I can't even get my stock linkage to fit, nothing lines up now that my t-case is flat with my frame rails. I'l be setting up a custom cable linkage, somewhat like the novak setup

How did everyone get the bolt off to remove the flange from the transfer case going to the front drive line with the 1 &1/8th bolt. I do nit have an impact driver and tried with breaker BaRs and leverage just snapped the breaker bar.

Had to impact gun it off at my shop at work. Another question I just put my mml on about to put the jb short shaft transfer case back up and was wondering if I should reuse my stick tranny mount or what I can replace it with

So did you reuse the tranny mount. The instructions for my brown dog mml said it would waste them but I'm sure that was for stock setup if someone wasn't going to lift the tranny up along with the mml lijebi am

OK... this is not mentioned on the UCF site, but is mentioned on the instruction sheets of the lopro mount. I think you would have to play with this a bit to get it right with a standard tranny mount.

The hanger that is part of the t-case bracket is cut in half ( between the two holes in the the bracket ) drill the holes to 1/2" and bolt them up... apparently this is all that is needed to make the exhaust clear everything... I will let you know... my mount should be here soon... I hope... ordered it Sunday.

Im using barnes offroads 1/4 flat belly skid. All mocked up My front shaft is about an 1,1/2" short. the back i just did the jb ss sye so still have to get this skid bolted up and drill the tranny mount holes in the center then rotate the back axle to get the measurments

And I have to use the stock tranny mount because the ucf lo pro does not work with the 2001 4 cylinder for some reason

I should have clarified when I said the front shaft is fine.... mine is fine with my 4" lift. I have not heard of any front shaft issues with a TT... yours' is the first.

I cannot see 1.5" difference in your front shaft since the angle is not anywhere near the angle of the rear... and my rear only extended 3/4" with a TT and stock mount. Make sure you have extended the slip on it? Just checking....

OK... Just installed my LoPro mount....

I have a 1.25" BL
Extra Clearance UCF skid
1"MML
among the adj. Control arms, SYE etc....

with the stock mount I had to drop the skid 1/2" to stop vibes ( severe angle )

LoPro installed and no vibes at all.... Shift linkage is almost lined up perfect with no bind and smooth shifting and doesn't pop out at all.

I did have to elongate the trans mount bracket holes to the rear to allow clearance on the skid by moving it forward. I move it forward about 1/4" and it fit perfect.

Pretty happy with it didn't have to do the hanger mod for the exhaust.... it's not bound up or tight and nothing hits anywhere..

THANKS MATT!!!

Any advice on the pinion angle change and the track bar bracket.remived the upper control arms and Started to jack up the rear axle pinion and the car started to roll back but I didnt notice the angle changing it looked like the car was being lifted up. keep jacking? Track bar is still connected btw take this off too until the arms are in!!?

No....leave your track bar alone. if you take it out, you may not get it back in unless you have an adjustable trackbar and angle rear CV track bar bracket.

As you jack the pinion, your axle will roll back a bit... its ok... the angle will change as you jack it.

Im having so much trouble getting the track bar back on. Part of it is because even with my pinion angle set, the track bar bracket on the axle is not the right angle as the frame bracket. My pinion angke even needs to be steeper than most with ucf skids because my skid is flat with the frame rails so this doesnt make sense. The track bar has red bushing so I think it came with the rc lift the po put on.I flipped it around and it fit much better exept it rubbed against the tank skid and when setting the pinion angle ended up lifting the jeep so I flipped it back over and can not get it to alight even while rotating the pinion. Help!!! My thoughts are the track bar bracket is not correct after reading stu's write up about differences in rubicon express brackets from years because the top tab is not flush with the axle bracket even when the bottim half of it is. Also my currie adjustable control arms seem to be too short. It may be again because I went flat belly. Ahhh im loosing it
