4WD popping out
« on: January 31, 2018, 11:31:50 AM »
So I noticed that each 4wd gear seems to sit pretty loose, ESPECIALLY 4L. I do have a body lift on it, maybe need extendos?

You mean on the shifter?  You probably need a white ball shifter, and may need to mess with making sure the console isn't stopping the stick at all now that there's a body lift.

So mechanically the only thing the lift could have changed is the shifter's relation to the body/boot/console itself.  I'd remove the console and make sure the boot isn't all weird from the body lift.  If it gets pinched it could absolutely put enough pressure to move it one way or another depending on driveline movement on/off throttle. 

I had a problem with mine where the upper boot was too thick to allow the shifter to stay in 2hi, because the shifter would sandwich it between itself and the plastic of the console.  Short term no-cares solution was to remove the boot and throw it out.

I'll have to remove it and check, but I really dont think its the boot.

Check your shifter, chances are that's all the problem is. But there is a chance it could be an actual problem with the transfer case. I had a problem with my 94 popping out of gear in 4 low. Just sayin, never know.
