after sye i have no 2wd
 
i have a 2006 TJ just installed a RR SYE and can't shift in to 2wd. I ensured that the spring was in and the shift mode ring was the correct way. i tried to shift the transfer case by hand but could not get it in to 2wd. we also removed the transfer case split it to make sure nothing was wrong but still could not shift it to 2wd by hand. i'm at a loss and do not know what to do next.

I have no idea but if you're worried about having to drive it to work in 4Hi, I would just remove the front driveshaft until you can get it figured out.

no one?

I'd personally DC the front driveshaft and then switch to a novak. I hate the stock linkage.

Novak is coming but can't shift by hand

You must have gotten some gahway sye mine i had to split apart my t case and put a shaft in it and then put the yoke on the end of that shaft and then connect the rear drive shaft

Did you have it in 4 lo when you installed it as the directions state? Make sure your linkage arm is facing down and not up. You may have it 180 out and not allowing proper movement.

The pic shows 2wd position. If you are 180 out, your linkage will hit the back of the case and not allow the 2wd position

Did you trim the end of the shift fork rod so that it doesn't hit the new bearing retainer?

That could be an issue on the earlier models. Pull the plug and watch it.. But I don't think the case would go on if this needed the mod.

Yeah, now that I think about it, that would keep it from going into 4wd anyway. Maybe something fell into the hole that the front of the rod fits in keeping it from sliding forward into 2wd.

mine was less than an inch when in 4lo so no need to trim
