    I’m having trouble shifting my NP203 t-case into low range. I can shift to all of high range and neutral, but no low range. Can someone help me out? Thanks! /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif

    some of you are talking about a different T-case than what he has.

    a position labeled 4lo, for instance, does not exist in a 203

    if your truck is body lifted then you might have the shifter hitting the floor tunnel pan edge,

    i would check that also

    The next time that I have time to work on it I will check the linkage. I think my Haynes book has something about that. Oh I don't have a body lift. Thanks for the help /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    I would think its the linkage. I saw the linkage on one truck get wedged against something on the transmission, and it wouldnt shift into any gear. We had to pry it out with a big metal bar.

    I cleaned up the linkage a little and sprayed some WD-40 on it and it work great. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
