5" body lift? -_-

So are you running off the front diff only? Some more info would be great... Gears not lining up doesn't really make a lot of sense.

The po may have put the kanudeler valve to close to the muffler bearings
OR
You have jeep gear lube in a ford rear end, might as well flush the turn signal fluid while your in there...It's hard to say.

You guys are brutal. Take the body lift off and reset the radiator. It should work fine after that. That is way to much body roll for the gears to work.

You may have to swap the lift around, it should be 5 in suspension & 6 in body lift. That should do it.
Did you ask the po for the box of leftover bolts???

When your that high up you need to take out the shocks and weld re-bar in there its the only way to line up the gears.. You could remove the body lift and replace it with 2x4s that might also help Unless your serious/ then more info and photos are required.

I'm right below you in Hickory, I might be able to take a look. I'd sure love to see the body lift though, I might want to do mine after that...
