When doing a body lift, do you have to adjust the t-case linkage? I have a 203 in a 75 burb.
You can check out the write-upp I did on my page: www.espen88k5.alloffroad.com
I disconected it while lifting, re-installed it and drove with it a couple of months before I used the adjustment treads on the rods to extend it 1/2 inch. It kept popping out of 4x4 high
may have to lengthen it maybe.
Here is the thing that i don't get though. It looks to me after looking around that the t-case has nothing to do with a body lift. Only thing that I might see being a problem is the shift lever hitting the cut-out in the floor. Can someone explain to me what it is that I seem to be missing.
I didn't have to adjust or lenghten my t-case linkage. I only have a 1" body lift though. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif
I'm only doing a 2" and I can't see how you would need to do any adjustments. If I'm missing something, please slap me in the face and show me the light.
You are correct, it is just a matter of the shifter rod hitting the cut out in the floor. can trim to make sure it still works if need be.
Just one of those deals where you find out what you end upp with and work out the bugs afterwords. I remembered my Warn 3" had it mentioned in the instructions, and it involved cutting the floorboard to allow the shifterhandle to travel the needed lenght.
Like I said before I solved my "pop-out of 4x4 high" issues by adjusting the treads on the rod between the transfer case and the shifter asembly. Took me a couple of tries though....
I believe that the 203 shifters are mounted to the tranny or t-case and the 208/241 shifters are mounted to the body, correct? This would be why some have had to adjust the linkage and some havent.
