New lift, 4wd problems

I just got a 4" lift installed in my TJ and tried to test out the 4h and 4low. It doesn't go right into 4h, but if I put it down to 4low (which doesn't work at all) and then bring it back down to 4h it occasionally works. I asked the company that installed the lift if I would need a new driveshaft and slip yoke eliminator and they said I don't. Is that the problem or could it be something else?

I had the same problem with mine. My jeep mechanic made an adjustment and it is fine now. (he didn't put the lift in, but got a hold of it since).

My drive shaft needs work now too, feeling vibration in the front end at low speeds. Don't know if it is related to the lift, but...

Where in NC are you?

You need to adj the t-case shifter linkage.. there is an adj screw nut that you will see toward the back drivers side of the linkage.

Definatly adjust your linkage. My linkage was out of adjustment from the factory.
