Problem is, you have droped the t-case and never messed with the linkage. They make a kit the rectifies the linkage situation you are facing. Now the interesting part. Not sure where you can find one. Maybe Quadratec, 4WHD, or Teraflex. I went with a SYE with my 4 1/2" lift to avoid, and keep my bellypan as high as possible. Sorry I have no more info than that. Hope it helps.
