    Nope. You'll need to install the transfer case drop that should be included, and you'll likely have to trim around the shifter hole if you're driving a standard, to get enough room to shift to 1,3 and 5th gears. I did with my '88.

    Much less work then. You may still need to trim where the transfer case selector lever comes through.

    How much trimming did you have to do?
    I did not trim but it wants to pop out of 2nd all the time, I hold it there until I hit 3rd and up

    instead of trimming i bent the shifter, works great
    its the 4x4 shifter 4low that wants to pop out once
    and a while now, looks like have to trim this one.

    thats the set up I am running, 4" is as big as you can go on stock driveshafts.

    with the body lift you will need to extend all of your shift links and entend your steering shaft, other then that there are some vaccume line extentions and relocation brackets included if nessisary.

    I got mine from just jeeps for $250, took about a week to get it done, with dealing with the rotted body mounts and rusted to f*** bolts.
