The shift handle was kept at it's original angle, just lengthened to 4" and holes drilled at 3" and 3 5/8" (that is the one i used). You do need to pull the console and i will take pictures today when i get it all finished off today.
Can you elaborate a bit more on what you had to do with the actual shift level that comes through the console ?

I can't remember exactly what angle it needs to point at but just take a marker and put an alignment dash like this

I was ordering some stuff on mcmaster-carr and I came across these
http://images1.mcmaster.com/Contents...g?ver=23186349
For making turnbuckles, got me thinking of this mod.

So I checked out my subscribed thread history, click it, and what do you know, I NEVER saw you updated the first page on how to do the modifications to the shifter handle itself. I just wanna thank you again, helps out a bunch. After the thread went to two pages I didn't check the first as I didn't know you updated it.

I'll be doing this here shortly, I'll let you know how it turns out.
Thanks!

I got my parts in and haven't gotten around to it. I ordered the 1/2" thread ball joint rod ends and turnbuckle, but now that its here I think it's a bit big so I may just go back to all-thread and being creative.

I'm working on getting the 8.8 in right now, afterwards while I'm waiting on parts for the hp30 to come in I'll probably get around to doing it as I won't miss not having 4wd if I have to have the thing apart a few days because I'll have 4.56's in the rear and 3.73's in the front until I get the hp30 in

I did something similar on my wife's Dakota. I used a goodsize turnbuckle for a screendoor, eliminated the snap in studs with a shouldered bolt. Then just added jam nuts to the turn buckle

I welded up the original hole in the t-case lever and gound down and redrilled it to fit. Here are the actual dimensions of the lever....


It's a little hard to make out so just ask if you need a clearer picture

Pry linkage from pivot points connecting the shifter to the case

Remove the center console from inside.

Remove the bolt holding the shift handle to the rotating lever.

Remove 4 screws holding down the "cup".

Remove the snap ring that holds the rotating lever in the cup.

So I've been working on the linkage and only have the cup to remove but I can't get the bolts off. I've tried using vice grips but it keeps falling off.
Is there any other way I should try and get them off. thanks for your help.
