Dang. Here it is.... I have 4hi but no low. Sounds like the teeth or whatever are too short and missing locking in? I'm assuming the motor mount lift screwed up the linkage? Is that the word?

Speak slowly, I'm still learning...

Yes.. mml i gues moved it a bit.... does it feel like 2wd engages closer to where 4hi used to engage or does it still engage in the end of the place?

sounds like you need to adjust the linkage, I think the body lift is more of the cause, you raised the shifter (attached to tub)
1" higher from the transfer case (attached to frame).

Scotty355 the mml pulls the tranny and the tcase forward.. id say the mml is more of the cause :D

When i installed my 2" bl i had to adjust the linkage just a bit and could still get into 4 lo.. just wasnt all the way in there.. it felt like it poped in there but would shift into neutral.. it felt like it was in 3/4 between the N and the 4Lo

Wait wait. Yes, I did a body lift (1 1/4) and a motor mount lift (1) last weekend. I didn't check the 4low then, but that's got to be when what ever happened happened.

The shifter doesn't sit level with the console anymore and it touches the top of the console before 4low engages. So, I'm assuming 4low is still there, I just need to adjust something. Is that the linkage?

If the tranny mount is hooked to the frame how does the transmission and tcase move forward?

Think about it.

Think about it.

I'm going with Scotty on this one. The body lift moves the transfer case lever up which requires a simple adjustment of the linkage. If anything, the MML helps address this problem. But since every jeep is different some require the adjustment.

Thanks Scotty, that's what it looks like since I noticed the lever isn't where it was. Never occured to me that it would be something simple, usually isn't when I'm involved. So you two, you know who you are, can just leave my tires alone.

That would be my thread!! Thanks for posting this Tiny, got me thinking again!! I have to run out there and try to adjust it real quick. I was just sitting here thinking if there was anything that I needed to do to the jeep that wouldn't cost any $$ and that's it!! We will see if I can get it straightened out?!?!

No, the instructions said I didn't need to because I was doing a motor mount lift... did I screw up?
