4 wheel drive not properly connected

so i just realized that my 4 wheel drive shifter lever is not properly connected. its not hinged properly on the bracket attached to the tub.
I have a 2 inch t-case drop. Is that going to prevent 4 wheel drive lever from working properly? and how can i fix this problem with out taking the skid plate off?
how do i Get MY 4x4 BACK???

I just re positioned the pivot lever or whatever it is. But it seems like there is way too much torque on the opposite point where its anchored to the t-case. And it jams when I try to go from 4L back down toward 2wd. What gives? No one said a t-case drop would rob me of 4WD!

These photos illustrate where the lever is hinging. And where the green gas it is is where I'm having problems now.

get rid of the t-case drop, put the linkage back together and adjust it. if the jeep is lifted, you'll probably need a CV rear driveshaft, which also requires adjustable control arms and a slip yoke eliminator.

What is a CV shaft and why do I want one? - JeepForum.com

HAHA i want to do that soooo bad. no money. and i want a d44 in back. so id need a different drive shaft? since the d44 yoke is bigger than the d35. I dont feel like getting two shafts out of impatience. it will cost in the thousands. not a realistic solution right now, im afraid.
SYE+CV drive shaft+D44= a ton of money. plus i'd wnat new tires and have to regear the front...
