Is the T-case bracket needed on my 1" BL

Some instructions say yes, others no... I like the write up's on 4x4explor and will use it, but wondering if it's a pain in the rump to change that bracket??


Also, anyone close in the Athens area that has a flat level concrete surface I can use


My other thread got hi-jacked so I'm making a new one

A fairly flat surface will do just fine and it doesn't need to be truly level....just use your head and be careful and you'll be fine. (disclaimer: this doesn't mean attempt install on a trail or 30 degree slope).

Just install the BL and see how the tcase shifts. If it is difficult to keep in 4L (hitting console) or getting in a bind (hard to shift), then yes, do it. If it shifts fine....

Great response, thank you.... Whats weird is I can barley get into 4L right now with no lift... it took me fooling with it for 5 minutes then it finally went in... does the Jeep need to be in N or Park?????

im in cinci, don't know how close that is. it usually helps to be in N just so it can (with lack of better term) roll into gear. its definitely harder to get into 4lo when in gear

jeep should be in neutral

i needed the tcase bracket...but i have a tcase drop too.

just put on the 1" BL...and check your 4wd and if it doesn't engage then install the bracket.

if you have a mml, you dont need the bracket. Thats what my directions stated and I did not need it.

I have less trouble/less or no grinding getting into 4Lo if my TJ is barely... at a dead-slow barely rolling crawl... moving when I shift with a good firm quick pull. If I'm in Park (now that I have an automatic installed) it seems to grind more.

Skyjacker makes a bracket that does away with the body connection for your linkage. The lever is connected straight to the transfercase, works very nice. I believe it was around $60.
