Ohhh, ok. Well- just ordered $900 worth of A to Z swag... but next month I will just order the BL, MML, belly up skid and Novak. That should keep me plenty busy.... and plenty broke.

The Novak shifter is amazingly smooth. It should have been there from the factory.

The first gear issue is something seperate, but if you do the mml and body lift like I did and can eliminate the transfer case drop, then the issues with 2nd and reverse should be taken care of. BUT, beware of driveline vibration from too much angle. I was pleasantly surprised that I didn't have an issue.
The Novak shifter for the transfer case does make shifting in and out of 4 wheeel drive very smoooth. If you are headed towards a tummy tuck I think it's almost mandatory.
Also a sye is needed for a tummy tuck, along with a bunch of other things. So, yes that should keep you busy with projects for a while.

It's a rubicon, so she doesn't need it. Rubicons have fixed flange rear outputs.

Mine works alright- sometimes I do have to give it a bit more of a tug than I would like. Since it would be something I will probably do down the line- I might as well do it while I am in there.

No. I am not one bit ashamed to say I cant resist improving Alice wherever I can. And my profession dictates that I must do it efficiently.

The linkage seems almost archaic once you install the cable setup .

I have it on the best authority that the sudden demand in pre-killed monkeys far exceeds the current supply...
