    Yep tranny linkage needs to change. I don't know if they sell a part or not. I made one for my freinds truck. You also need to modify your fan shroud so the fan doesn't hit the bottom of it. It varies on what else can be to short keep an eye on all your libes and wiring under the hood and such.

    <font color="blue"> Fan shroud, tranny linkage, and gas filler hose. My kit from Performance Asseccories came with the 3 inch linkage to weld on to the existing tranny linkage. You have to cut the origininal in half and weld it in the middle. If you want to make it look nice then raise the front and rear bumpers and maybe some gap guards. When I installed my 3" body lift all the wires on the firewall had enough slack in them. </font>

    I don't have a Body lift but I think the t-case linkage may be affected also...

    Hello Drew , don,t forget to disconnect the tailgate torsion springs that are attached from the tailgate to the frame.They will need to come off before you can lift the body. I am in the process of lifting my 2wd 3 inches. Dont really know about that shifter linkage.
