lowering shifter? HELP

ok so my dad had a jeep right 91 and he got a 2 inch body lift and 31's and he said that him and his friend had to grind out where the shifter was and when it was all over the shifter was lower. Why does this happen and will I have to do this to my 97 wrangler if i get a suspension lift? appreciate the HELP

The transmission is bolted to the frame of the Jeep. The body lift raises the body off of the frame. The shifter stays in the same spot and the tub of the Jeep rises around it.

If you only lift the suspension, you will not have problems with the shifter. I have a 1" body lift and my shifter dropped, but it feels better where it is now.

If you go with a 4" suspension you have to lower the transfer case with supplied spacers....this makes the shifter hit...so you have to heat and bend the shifter or just put in a B&M short shifter.....a MUCH better alternative and awesome shift feel, short throws, tight and firm(just the way I lik'em) Brian

You don't need to adjust anything with the t-case when you lift. All he needs is a SYE.
