I will walk you through mine as an example.
The PO had a 4" sl instaled that came with a tc drop kit on it (2 - 1" steel bars placed in between the skid plate and frame) This binds the crappy linkage from the factory because of the new angle and sometimes makes it hard to shift into 4lo or stay in it. To remedy this, I did the following:
-Unscrew the four bolts holding on the bracket for the linkage. bolts are inside the cab and bracket is underneath.
-Remove the bracket from underneath paying close attention as to how the linkage is put together down there.
-Take that bracket that the four bolts screw through into the cab and line it up with the original holes. Now slide it down roughly 1" and mark for new holes.
-Drill out those holes, grab some longer bolts that you probably have laying around in a bin and re-install everything. Since the area that the holes were drilled has a bit more of an angle than the bracket used to sit on, I put a few extra washers on the bottom two to kind of compensate.
Your shifting problem is fixed. 4-lo all day long. If you feel the need, you could always weld some tabs into the old bolt holes and paint or something. I didn't just because I was planning on doing what I just got done doing....installing a SYE and taking out that darn drop kit.
