I and many others have a Novak shifter installed and when installed properly with the right geometry, it does indeed solve the problems associated from having installed body lifts and/or t-case drops.

If you are locked into 2wd, it's certainly not the fault of the Novak kit. It's not easy to get the geometry right but it's not that difficult either. Sounds like you just need to figure it out because once you do, it'll improve your shifting substantially.

Oh I gotcha, I thought Skyjacker was now selling the Novak kit and that was what you were complaining about. Yeah, that bracket from Skyjacker isn't always a good fix.

The skyjacker kit worked perfectly for me, but I've only got a 1" BL with my RK belly pan. The Novak kit replaces everything and you just have to bend the shift rods to make everything work for you. Take your time with it and you won't ever have to mess with the shifter again.

It is easy Jerry. They just gotta use some welding rod to set it up before they make the final bends.
