Codyak It doesnt seem shotty up close. Who knows though the guy i bought it off was a slob. But in the 2nd pictue right in the middle a piece of the linkage is stuck on the side of the tranny. Soon as i get the speedo plug im gonna drive it to the jeep shop

Jerry Bransford Something there makes me think someone installed some kind of an aftermarket kludge t-case bracket.

Codyak Theres 3 pics of the linkage. Somethings gotta be wrong. I wish i could see someone elses! And last one is a pic of it in action!

Codyak Tension is not the issue though. Its as if the frame is bent or the skid. The skid needs to be narrowed or frame needs to be widend. The skid obky adjusts front to back not side to side. But ill try. Its only 1/8" off. Hopefully i can fix my tcase libkage. Its all jammed up against my tranny and off angle. Ill snap a pic for u guys to see

Thanks. And ill be sure to adjust the linakge at the top.
Don't remove the linkage bracket if you do have the body lift. The first post read to me as you did NOT have one. You do need the bracket to compensate for the body lift. Your issue is most likely just the linkage.

As for the skid....put your jack under the transmission...remove the trans mount nuts. jack the drive-train up. Then you will release all tension from the skid.

Codyak Ya ill remove the afyermarket drop to the linkage. And i know of the four bolts. I must have to loosen them more. Problem is the skid need to move and 8th of an inch side to side. Not front to back!!

If it has a aftermarket linkage bracket...remove it. You still may have to set the linkage by using the adjustment rod...there is a bolt tightened down on the rod...loosen the rod to make adjustments.

You did loosen the transmission mount bolts right? Otherwise it make be applying pressure to the skid not allowing it to line up. The transmission mount is bolted to the skid....(those four little bolts on the bottom rear center of the skid) Loosen them to relieve pressure, make your adjustment to align the skid, secure skid, tighten the mount bolts back.

Jerry Bransford Raising the transfer case back up to its original position caused the transfer case linkage to go out of adjustment. There is one bolt on the transfer case linkage that requires a 1/2" wrench that holds it in adjustment. Loosen that bolt and adjust the rod's position that bolt holds so the shifter is back in adjustment.

This assumes the t-case shifter linkage is stock and no one has installed an adapter bracket for it that is sometimes installed with a t-case drop.

The bolt that holds the linkage in adjustment is circled in red below.
