Skyjacker Transfer Case Shifter Correction Bracket

Skyjacker Transfer Case Shifter Correction Bracket

http://www.quadratec.com/products/12521_901.htm

I'm wondering who has used this? It says cutting & welding are required, but it looks like a pretty simple replacement... anyone?

Mine bolted to the transfer case, took an hour to install. My transfer case shifts are very positive and smooth. Just about the single best mod I have on my Jeep.

Check out the installation instructions which is provided as a pdf file on the page that you linked to, then look at the bottom of the page and it will show you what you have to weld.

If you get this bracket, Let us know how much of a job it is as I am thinking of the same thing if not a complete replacement assembly.

I have the skyjacker installed it 3 days ago, you need to cut and weld for this mod. Not hard at all but you will need a welder and a sawzall or a hack saw..

I have one on my 03 TJ. I don't know what all this cut and weld stuff is. It was a 1 hr install. No cutting or welding. A little knuckle busting, due to tight area, but a great mod to make it shift easy. A good ratcheting wrench helps.

....After installation check the operation of the transfer case shifter. Depending on the application, cutting of the shift rod may be necessary.
Scribe and cut the shift ro 5 1/2” from the end of the shaft. Insert 3/8” tube spacer, being sure that the scribe marks are in line. Weld to produce the desired shaft length.

Not necessary for Unlimited Models.

It would be nice of them to list the applications that required this step. I think on TJs it is only required for std wheelbase models with a manual trans.

I've been checked. Mine is an Advanced Adapter version of this bracket. The good news is I didn't have to weld anything. Check out the AA product.
