Yj Transfer Case Shift Bracket for NV3550 - YJ

Just put a NV3550 w/231 transfer case in my YJ. I ordered the transfer case shift bracket from Advance Adapters

Has anyone been able to get this thing to bolt on without modification? Cutting your tub counts as a mod. I have had to notch one ear of this bracket and cut a chunk out in another place to get it to fit around the shift tower. Now if I want to use 4WD low it looks like I will have to cut the tub as well.

Is there somewhere else I can get a bracket that doesn't need to be modified?

I used an AA bracket for a little while, but quickly upgraded to the Novak cable shifter. It's a much better solution
Wanna cracker?

Home made

I am swapping a nv3550/np231 into my yj behind a diesel. I tucked the transmission and transfer case up as high as i could. I decided to made my own shifter and bracket.

I just used the AA bracket, cut the body just enough then notched the bracket. I had to make a new tunnel cover but it was easy and looks better then original. Works fine and looks better than stock.
