got home and decided to try out the 4wd... it goes into high range but not low, just flat out won't go into low... he says that it has done that ever since the lift was put on.. so what am i missing here, i checked the linkage, its not binding on anything that i can see.. anything i should look for or check? maybe need a new D/R trans?
also, what gear oil should i be running in it? had to change it out on the trip home and all jiffy lube had was 90w.. i'm thinkin it would use 80w90 but just wanna be sure.. will prolly have to change it again to get the right stuff in there...

the lever on the front of the tranny was in the forward position while in 2wd, thus makin it not go into low. so it was rigged just to opposite of what it shoulda been.. in 2wd the lever should be in the back position and in low it should be in the forward position.. thats just by looking at which way the bar moves in the different positions..
i tried adjusting it, couldn't get it to work properly. would only work one way or the other, i either got low and no 2wd, or i got 2wd and no low. 4h seemed to work no matter what, guess since its in between 2h and 4L. the bar has a ball-joint type end and its flexin pretty good and i'm thinkin thats why it won't move the lever properly
is there an adjustment somewhere else besides that bar that connect to the lever on the front of the tranny? maybe under the shifter on top of the tranny?
shoot me down if i'm wrong on any of this, really wanan get it fixed so i can go climb a tree somewhere
