small problems after lift install

After installing the blackmountain 3.5" lift and 32's I have to push the shifter really hard and hold it in the park position to get the key out of the ignition. Also while engine is running in park or in drive with the brake on I have a engine vibration which wasnt there before the lift & transfer case drop. Any ideas on how to fix these issues?

I'm assuming your shifter is on the column...

With the t-case drop you've changed the linkage geometry. Crawl up under the rig and add about 1/2 of length (adjustable) to where the linkage meets the trans shifter lever.

As for the vibes, make sure your valve cover is not hitting your firewall (common on t-case drops). If it is loosen the 2 bolts holding the trans to the skid, and using a bottle jack push the trans and engine forward about an inch. Then re-tighten trans bolts.

If not hitting the firewall, Re-torque your trans bolts and outrigger assy on the skid, might be just someting you overlooked.
