I thoroughly appreciate the fallout references and the bewbs! More builds should have more of both. Keep up the good work!

Funny story, there...

Since I'm running on such a tight budget right now, I basically decided to keep my hands off the t-case shifter until I could just send $150 to Novak. If I could send 150 caps to Novac and get a shifter, I would.



Seriously, though...I hate doing things twice, so neither bending the linkage to work nor installing the bracket that Daystar gave me were good solutions. However, after disconnecting my battery for a bit during The Saga of The Fuel Injectors (that's a coming installment, as well) I noticed that the four-wheel drive light went absolutely HAYWIRE when I connected the battery and cranked the Jeep back up again. It was sort of a random "on/off/blinking/off/blinking" pattern...and then it came on and stayed on. I decided to try to shift the t-case, just for the hell of it, to see if I had maybe touched a wire or a sensor or something, and see what happened. This is when things got surprising, because two events transpired: 1) the light went off when I shifted into four-wheel high, and 2) the t-case shifted into four-wheel high flawlessly.



So I figured that something was still screwy, and I tried to go into low-range. And I got that familiar, staccato clunking noise before she dropped right into low-range as well. If anything, the case shifted better than it did before. The light started functioning again normally, as well. No issues since then, and I've got full t-case functionality.

So, I have NO F****** IDEA what is going on with that. I'll know when I get inside it here in a few weeks and install a cable shifter. I suppose that my final answer to your question is to not muck around with the bracket at all, and just go to the better solution up front. If you're going to tear into that area, put in something you won't have to worry about ever again.
