shifter/linkage backwards - Help

HELP. Suggestions welcome. I made a dumb-*** mistake, but haven't figured out just what, yet.

Just swapped an AX15 and NP231 into my '87 YJ. (put wider chain/gears and 6 planetary into the np231).

Problem: Instead of 2H, 4H, N, 4L. Now I have (starting from front) N, 4H, 2H.
So everything is backwards and I can't get into 4L at all.

I thought the linkage was on correctly, but perhaps not. Before I rip into this, does anyone have any opinions on what we did wrong? As in, could we have mounted the linkage incorrectly? Or is there any reason to think the vacuum lines may be a culprit?

Figured I'd ask here in case anyone can visualize what I did wrong that would cause this.
