Anyone know about rough country.

I have a RC 4 inch suspension lift kit and I was wondering if the kit is supposed to come with some sort of adapter for the transfercase linkage since it has the TC skid drop. Mine doesn't seem to have the linkage adapter and 4lo always disengages when I take it in the mud I have to keep my hand on the lever to keep it in lo. My main question is is there an adapter for the underbody for the linkage and do the sell it separate from the kit. Any one know how I can contact rough country about this?

Any problems with your transfer case disengaging? My old one did it now I have a brand new np231 with maybe 6000 miles on it and it does the same thing.

Have you tried to adjust it? Some folks have had success in loosening the adjusting screw, adjusting and re-tightening the screw.

Yea I had this problem after a body lift. It's really simple. If you look under there there's a screw higher up that should be loosened and retightened with the shifter up. if you honestly can't find it I can take a picture later for you. Just let me know

On the drivers side there is a bar that runs through a bracket with a retaining bolt in it. Loosen that bolt and move the bar forward to front of the Jeep. From my quick research, I found one post that says it should be in 4lo when you do this. I'm guessing this will be a trial and error sort of thing to get it dialed in just right. I'd snag pictures for you, but I don't have stock linkage anymore. Mine was too rusted to adjust so I replaced it with cable linkage.

That's it. I think it's supposed to be 1/2". Shift to 4lo, loosen the bolt and tap it forward. Try a 1/2" at a time.

That one right there on the bottom. Loosen, put in 4L then tighten. I got it right first time. I might do a write up of this sometime. Maybe it'll get stickied

Another tip.. always try to mark the original position before making any adjustments.

Well the bolt that hold the male bar from slipping up or down is what needs to be adjusted. I had put the shifter as high as I could then loosened. When loose I put it where it needed to be (all the way up) then tightened. Still went all the way down to 2high and worked fine
