Need some help with np231 shifter

Ok so I bought my yj with a 3 inch body lift n a messed up t-case. Picked up a 231 from a tj and threw a slip yoke on it. I also did a 2 inch motor lift. I know may have been a little over kill. Now I have the shift linkage bar from the yj and the tj and neither one hook up. Oh and I'm also working on a belly up skid plate as we speak. Welding in my crossmember in a few. But I wanted to get this linkage hooked up before I weld everything. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

perhaps if you told us why the linkage from the YJ won't "hook up"...(I'm suspecting because the TJ's 231 case doesn't have all of the bolt bosses the older cases have)

The yj linkage is to short and the tj linkage is to long

Can you post a couple pictures of your problem. When you say too short are you saying that it won't clear the bottom of the tub or that the bolts don't line up?

I'm using this thing from Novak. Does the job and is pretty adaptable.
