Sorry, since I do not have a BL, I do not know what does or does not come with a kit. If it already comes with a bracket, great.

The opinions of worthless people, are worthless.

The only problem that you have with anyone in this world, is what you expect of them.

Wondering if I'm the only one with this problem. I have the 4 by shift bracket and that can be adjusted.
But, is everybody driving around without their shift boot? Easiest thing to do is move the console back 2", I think.

You can loosen up the console and should be able to move it back enough to clear. Might also want to check with the body lift that your body didnt shift any when putting it on.

Hey Jeffery,
I installed my 2.5" with 1.25" BL over the weekend and had a small issue with the x-fer case relocation bracket. Since I have an LJ I didn't need to install the TC drop, however, after the BL install I had difficulty engaging 4-Lo. The directions specifically say NOT to install the TC relocation bracket unless you've also installed the TC drop. I was able to adjust the linkage just enough to get it to stay in 4-LO, but it is still more difficult to engage than I would like.

I should mention, I tried installing the TC lowering bracket to see if it would cure the problem but was unable to get everything aligned with the bracket. It was late and I had put ~8 hours in already so I gave up and just went back to the stock configuration with the aforementioned linkage adjustment.

Thoughts?

Prior to the lift, a TJ has the aerodynamics of a brick. After the lift it has the aerodynamics of a brick 2.5 inches higher.

Install the brackets. For some reason I dont know why the instructions say that. Have you adjusted the linkage down?

Well, all things are relative I guess. Basic for me, considering it's 100% bolt together. I'm used to the cut/burn/fab methodolgy. So far, I'm really enjoying the "build".

Jeeps. Lotsa Jeeps...
