I am having problems getting the jeep to go into low range. When it does go eventually in has tendency pop out.. Recently had the suspension lifted 2 inches by Old emu lift kit. Spoken to the garage who installed the lift kit and
they have told me it has nothing to do with the suspension. Has anyone had the same problem after having the suspension lifted?? or have any idea what
it could be.

Thanks for you time Sara..

when shifting into 4low unlike high u must be stopped... do it in one swift fast motion and make sure its all the way in.. if it still pops out you might need the trasfer case replaced

The shift forks might be worn out. Check the linkages first though.

BEFORE you go getting anything replaced, find a Factory Service Manual (FSM) and locate instructions for adjusting the Shifter lever linkage.

It is very likely you only have a linkage adjustment problem (especially if everything worked ok before the lift)! It is fairly common it seems after a Lift Installation.

The adjustment is a locking nut assembly on a cable attached to transfer case on one end and the other end attaches to the Lever. The amount of "throw" the lever has is variable.

Hope you are successful and save your money for MODS!

x2 on what jppilot said! that problem has everything to do with the suspension kit being installed. the garage probably were defensive and not quick to own up to something in case there was a true "problem". a quick adjustment with a 13mm (i think) wrench will have your gears solidly in place in no time.

Was there a t-case drop installed in conjunction with your lift install? If so, that's the issue. The linkage needs adjustment and your shop either doesn't know what they're doing or doesn't want to help their customer after their mistake.
