Fork Shift Rod

I know I didnt cut enough for my SYE so I will cut it a little more, would this cause it to not be able to go into anything 4wd wise? I have been stuck in between 2H and 4H and when I try to shift back it hits and then I have to manually push it back with a screwdriver.

If you disconnect the linkage and manually shift the TC into 2wd and ity lets you, it's the linkage. If it won't go into 2wd even with the linkage disco'd it's the rod.

Some shift rods varied in length. I didn't have to trim mine when I did my SYE. I think mine protruded about 3/4" or so and if I remember correctly, the PORC SYE had a pocket about 1 1/8" deep. It protrudes the farthest in 4LO, but if you're having problems going from 2wd to 4wd HI, you may have some problems with the linkage.

Did you have a TC drop on before you did the SYE? And did you ever adjust the linkage before (like with the drop on). The bushings on the linkage can also wear and get sloppy over the years. The rebuild kit is a couple $$ from the dealer, but it's a pain to put the new bushings in.

I didnt mess with the linkage so I dont know if its been replaced. The shaft was cut today and that seemed fine, but my shifter {4wd} is still doin the same thing and it wont go all the way back.

So there is probably something up with the linkage, it would shift gears and all, but the handle placement would be all off. For example 2wd=4HI, 4LO=N and there was no room to move it into 4LO. It was just dumb and before we could figure it out I had to be somewhere and had to leave the Jeep. Also the oil pump kinda fell out of position, but barely, not sure if thats gonna pose a problem or not, it didnt seem to wanna stay. What doesnt make sense is that the linkage was fine before the install, so somethin must have happened, but we are not sure what.

Here I have a feeling this might help out your linkage problem
