Are you just getting into t-case neutral, or does it shift all the way to 4-lo? If you only reach neutral, you might need to adjust the boot and cut the tranny-cover an extra inch or 2 to allow for proper movement.

Adjust the linkage. Not too complicated a process. No guarantee, but sounds like that might be the problem.

Hey, I had same proplem after 1" BL install, You will need to trim around transfer case shifter at the back of boot around floor sheetmetal, 1" or so you won't have any more problem. Good luck.
