Upgraded transfer linkage?

About to install my rebuilt 242 and XJ44 rear axle, thought now might be a good time to swap the linkage.

Do I remember reading about an upgraded linkage setup available from somewhere? Has anyone made up their own?

I see Froelich has something over at CF.. but seems pricey for two heims and some all thread.

EDIT: add link. http://froehlichsuspension.3dcartsto...kage_p_24.html

Thank You for the link.. it may be what I remember being mentioned. Are there other kits on the market?

Has anyone had issues with this kit in the rust belt?

Had it for a year next month on my big 5.9 here in Mn. No issues.

Edit, I have the cable on mine, not linkage.

Taz360ZJ - you have the Novak cable shifter? They had told me that product wouldn't work on a ZJ.

I've really got to fix/replace my linkage.

I'm not sure how to use your post... but OverlandZJ. Does that linkage from your link work on the ZJ or only XJ's? I would assume it works but I could be wrong. Thanks in advance for any input.

Instead of the linkage system by Novak, I would use the cable version. I don't know if it's a direct bolt-on for the ZJ, but I'm pretty damn sure it can be made to work since the same version is OK for TJs and XJs for both 231 and 242..

This is what I would love to use eventually. I just can't afford it at the moment. I'm sure some of you know how that goes.
