Removed transfer case drop, shifter smacks dash

Like the title says, I removed the POs TC drop and now the shifter smacks the dash in 1,3,5 gear. Will this self correct if I loosen and retighten the tranny mount nuts?

Not unless your motor mounts are compressed all the way forward.

Installing a motor mount lift will probably help. My shifter was all over the place as I was installing my body lift, motor mount lift, and high clearance skid plate.

Another alternative is to bend the shifter (probably need a torch for this one). Actually, the PO may have bent yours forward after installing the drop.

I considered this, but doubt it as he seems to have half assed everything else on the jeep.

I'll check the tranny mount and post back. I have a MML and new tranny mount waiting to go in, too.

In that case, the shifter should return to a usable state...depending on the mount(s) you may actually end up with the opposite problem where the back end of the console is in the way.

I almost can't wait to get yelled at by the wife so I can tell her the boogieman made me do it

Can you afford the car? Have I provided you all the information you need on the car? Do you like the car? Then buy the car.

Fair question. PO had a 4" Procomp lift that I removed. I ran out of time after pulling the lift and left the TC drop for another day (today).

Jealous of all the shot taking. I'd pour myself a slug of Lagavulin, but it's too hot to enjoy good single malt.

No Label Mint IPAs tonight.

What's wrong with a Pro Comp lift?
The springs are actually pretty good.
Once you replace the control arms, shocks, and t-case drop with good pieces, you have a good lift.
Not understanding the Pro Comp hate around here.

Oh my... all this shot talk and Ted Nugent Stranglehold playing is making me thirsty.

Not nice fellers...

Rokmen TT, Rokmen control arms, Novak NV241 cable shifter, JKS 1.25" BL + 1" MML.

Anybody can take advice if it doesn't interfere with their plan.
