Adjusting The Transfer Case Shift Linkage Questions?

I just installed MORE MML, JKS 1.25 BL and a Medic T-case skid on my 06 Rubi six speed

Now shifting the tranfer case seems to take more effort than before. I did follow Jerry's instructions on adjusting the T-case shift linkage but the information is kinda vague. So I am just looking for verification. I shifted the T-case into 4 low, marked stock location, loosened the 13 mm nut, and the trunnion block moved back (towards the rear axle) on the rod less than 1/8th of an inch.

Is this the correct direction to move the trunnion block?

Now it seems to shift from 2 high to 4 high easier but 4 low is still kinda of tuff to get into.

I did shift the t-case into all gears before I made the adjustment but don't remember it being so difficult. It seems to be binding when shifting from neutal to 4 low.

How can I tell is I am getting FULL engagement?

I did do a search but there is not much discussion on which direction the trunnion block should move.

So please school me on adjusting the T-case shift linkage. Thanks in advance.

I have posted on ROF also.

It's binding because of the body lift. Your linkage is connected to the body and the t-case doesn't get lifted 1.25" inches to match the body.

What I did was get an Advance Adapters bracket which bolts to the tranny and re-locates the linkage off the tub.

The part number is AA715542. I bought one from http://www.*******.com/
Jay's price was the best I found.

Yea I'm not sure on where to get it at the best price - a user on this forum sold it to me for $25.

His Jeep Medic skid lifted the TC by 2", so it's not going to tweak the linkage by much.

You can manually shift the TC into 4-low, have someone hold the lever all the way up, and tighten the bolt.




P.S. The AA adapter can't touch the Novak system.

Although the cool thing to recommend is the Novak, I'm all about the AA bracket.

I had the same problems as you along with having the T-case keep popping out of 4LO on the trail. It really sucks to end up freewheeling down the side of the mountain

The AA bracket is cheap, easy, and will cure your problems.

Personally, I don't see any reason why and more than that is needed. JMO.

SkyJacker

Skyjacker makes a great adjustable linkage that does not connect to the body as the stock linkage does. I installed it in about a hour and it works great. I bought it used off of Ebay for $27
