    Glad we could help. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif You may want to in the future change out the small spacers and use some solid strips of metal. (6x1.5) What ever the size is to make it a little more solid. I need to do that to mine soon. (i think Superlift makes them) if you don't want to.

    Again glad we could help. /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif KEN /forums/images/graemlins/usaflag.gif

    Right on! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    You may want to put your t-case in 4wheel to see if it falls outta gear. I had that prob but didn't realize why for months.
    I just recently learned how to adjust my t-case, thanks to 4x4High and some of the other guys!

    DO TELL...(adjust? /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif )
    I thought that you could only drop the t-case not adjust it...

    You say I might need to adjust the linkage....is there a chance if I drop it out of 2H I won't be able to shift back... or as long as I can shift to 4H and 4L then it's all good?? /forums/images/graemlins/ears.gif /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Thanks, Randy

    It might drop out of 4hi and 4lo. You could put it back but I had to hold my shifter in gear in order to keep it in 4wheel. It's an easy fix.
    But first try putting it in 4wheel and drive around and go over some bumps or something. If it slides out of 4wheel then you should adjust.

    I had to adjust my t-case for the body lift. It's easy 2 man or woman job. Scott helped me adjust the t-case on my 84. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
