Great New Jeep, Serious little problem.

Ok, I've had my jeep for 3 months and love it. I knew it had a slight transfer case problem so I got it into 2WHEEL high. So since it 10 degrees out side and for the next month, I decided to try to dig in... I think my transfer case probably fine now that I have discovered the real probem. Now how to fix it? I need a picture of how it should really look and what used to be in this jeep before it was modded. Or does anyone have a picture with this same setup and did it right? Sorry the video is not so good. Its a new camera and I'm still getting used to it. Thank you...

Need to first identify the transmission and the T-Case. You are correct the t-case shifter isn't supposed to move. On a stock YJ it actually is bolted to the trans.

the shifter is supposed to be mounted much more forward of where it is currently. almost inline with the other shifter.

Looks like an NV4500 trans. You'll need to work out a custom mount for the shifter, or just make a new shifter all together. The good news is you have an excellent trans. Is the 231 case still there or something else?

I did a little searching and didn't find any examples for adapting the stock shift linkage on an NV4500-231 combo. Novak has a nice cable shifter kit I found. Once you confirm what tcase you are running maybe we can get some other options.
