O man I remember the day....

Well been a while but there was some nice writeups how to tighten that flop in steering up and down. its not your tilt its 4 bolts barried deep in there that need tightening. I did mine 3 months ago and lock tite and snuged up and there great now. As for shift linkage I am in the same boat right now. It has been done and I acutally have a B&M shifter right here I am going to be installing soon as I get my trasfercase back in. My linkage has like no bushings anywhere its so sloppy I can't get down to first or safely into park haha. As for steering slop there was a sticky in our YJ section read that and use serch bar. I replied to a few of them that were super helpfull. You will need a steering wheel puller plate or somethign like that to pull the lock ring off. Rest is just carefull moving and unbolting stuff in order until you get in deep enough to use a 1/4" socket (Its a reverse torq star head but 1/4 was super tight no stripping.
