cru9 I am going to climb under there today and look again. I didnt see any adjustment but like I said I was on the trail and was mad as hell. I emailed the guy who installed but like my luck goes no response.

jdhallissey Instead of the lowering kit, jump up underneath and adjust the rod going into the t-case. I didn't have to run a lowering kit on mine with a tcase drop. If you do no biggie. If you need one let me know I can get mine in the mail to ya.

Ahh ok, that would indeed be the t-case lowering kit.
Yep, you should have an adapter plate that came with it somewhere. Should look like like a metal plate with several holes poked in it. It will lift the linkage up an inch or two to get it back to normal height.

Several spacers that lower your skidplate that is below your Jeep that your Transfer case and trans etc sit above (And attach to).
It helps keep the driveline angle from getting too steep if you don't have a SYE and CV driveshaft installed (otherwise you can get bad vibrations in the driveline). It looks kinda like this (although your TJ one would have more pucks)

ryt2112 Well, are you using a t-case lowering kit or do you have an SYE etc. installed? If you are using the tcase lowering kit, you will need an adapter for the linkage. If you have an SYE installed and are not using the tcase lowering kit, you should not need the adapter, and probably just need to adjust your linkage (unless you have a body lift also, which would need the adapter then as well).

At least that's what I think, others will know better I'm sure

Ken Steele Should have come with a bracket/s to relocate the linkage set up by an inch or two.

Shifting to 4 low problem

I have a new 4" roough country lift and went to the woods today and can not shift to 4 low. It is binding up. It shifts into 4 high with no problem. Should there be a extension for the linkage for the 4" lift?
