HELP! After 2" BB, NO Low 4!

I installed 2" coil spacers this weekend and was out in the desert today and couldn't get it into low 4.
Is there a connection between the lift and it not going into low 4?

You can try to adjust the linkage on your transfer case, or you may need a novak linkage

The suspension lift won't cause that issue but a transfer case drop sure can. Or perhaps the transfer-case linkage simply slipped a tad out of adjustment which they do.

When it slips, the t-case lever can't pull the t-case completely into 4Lo so you need to adjust the linkage which is a one-banana job that only requires a 1/2" wrench.

With a helper shifting from above, crawl underneath your Jeep so you can see your transfer case linkage. Have your helper pull the lever into 4Lo so you can see how it works. Then loosen the bolt circled in the below photo so you can position the shift linkage rod a little further into its holder on the linkage so it can pull that shift rod far enough.

It's easy once you've done it and not too hard if you haven't.

Thanks Jerry! I haven't dropped my t-case yet, but I plan on doing it in the next day or so and I'll give the adjustment a try. BTW, what's a "one-banana job"??

A job that takes about as long as it takes to eat a banana.
