XJ 96 - 6" lift. Is there an extension for the Transfer case ?

Hello ALL,

Working on a 1996 XJ with a 6 inch lift.
Most was done well except one thing.
The shifter from 2 wd to 4x4 to 4x4 low is not working.
There is a 1 inch drop kit on the transfer case, but NO kit to connect the pin that goes into the side of the transfer case to allow you to use the manual 4x4 shifter.
Is there a kit out there to reconnect it???


Thank you in advance for the help.

At 6", there really should be a SYE on the T-case, which would allow the drop to be removed.
Otherwise, I THINK there is a way to use a plate from a TJ in place of the same plate on the XJ, with the TJ plate having dimensions different enough to make it all line up.
Or I might just be off my meds

I was going to say that a 6 inch lift really should have sye kit from everything I've read. ..key word read. ...because I myself have not done a lift that high. If you figure it out let us know.

Hello and welcome to the forum.
I would manually shift the transfer case to make sure 4x4 works, and if it does I'd use a Boostwerks Engineering 231 HD Shift Linkage (Auto Trans) . According to that webpage, an exta $8 hardware kit is required if you're running a tranfer drop.

Install a sye , hack and tap if your on a budget , remove t/c drop. You'll be amazed how smooth and quiet she rides with the rear drive shaft corrected.
