4x4 problem

I have a 93 ZJ with a 5in Pro Comp lift and when my 4wheel partime is engaged and my tranny is in reverse my jeep stalls almost immediatley after I release the brake or when I go to give it some throttle. Since the lift install I havent lowered the T-case and it is pretty sticky going into 4-Lo(grinding and what not) as well. I was wondering if my driveshaft angles are too severe even though visibly they dont look bad. Also my U-joints are fairly new and I get a nice clank after I put the tranny in reverse or drive and step on the throttle, I was wondering if this could be T-case related as well. If anyone could help me out, thanks in advance.

ONly thing I can help you with is that when you shift from 4 hi to 4lo you need to be rolling about 2 or so MPH and put your gear shift in N and then quickly jerk it into 4 lo .. Do the same when shifting back slow roll shove it into 4 hi..

Mine makes some noise once in a while because the bump stop thingy drags on the coils..

Good luck with the other stuff..
Hope the shift info helps..

Yes that is How I engage my 4-lo and there is some nasty grinding still. Im stumped on this stalling problem and have been looking for my mechanic but everytime I try to find the bastard hes got an 'out to lunch' sign on his god damn door! I guess the only way to resolve this is to hunt him down!
