shifting???

Im having problems shifting into 2nd and 4the gears, I know it has to do with the dropped transfer case and I think its hitting my tuffy console. Any insight??

You may have to trim the hole in your floorboard. Your shifter is probably hitting the tub. I had to cut mine back about an inch to get 2nd and 4th after 3"lift.

When I did my 4" lift, I had to cut out my floor pan, and move the black plate, shift boots and everything back a little way. My stock console is almost in the way for me to use my reverse ..

Are you having problems with your reverse?

Like I said I cut mine back about an inch. After that no problems.

I pulled the innner boot off and moved it back 1 inch, moved the outer boot back and moved the tuffy back 1 inch. Problem solved! Thanks fellas!
