3" Body Lift with Manual Transfer case???

Have any of you guys out there done this yet? Is there an extension for the transfer case that I can buy or will I have to make one?

And other than the transfer case extension and the transmission extension is there anything else I would need that is not included in the kit?

Thanks

I've done it, you would have to make your own extention, no one sells them. I never even made one for mine, i just cant put it in 4-low.
The only other thing you'll need is some gap fillers which you can make from some rubber matting from lowes.

I did it. I couldnt get mine in 4-Low either. The only solution for me was to hack up the floorboard, and then I had to heat up the shifter and bend it a little bit to clear on the sides. It sucks, I know. But it beats getting stuck in the middle of no where. Right now I have a towel covering the hole up otherwise its VERY noisy in the cab. I'm trying to come up with something to put there to make it better, but so far, nothing.

So it can be done just a huge pain in the a$$ if you wanted to keep 4 low. I will have to take a closer look at the situation and see how hard an extension would be to make. I don't really want to loose 4 low or cut a hole in the floor.

being the angle of the arms to the floor after a body lift cause the floor to be a huge problem also after a little while your boots will start ripping everyone that has done it will start seeing this. this was the deciding factor i thought i dont wnat a level II anymore you better off getting a superlift and doing it that way it wont mess w ith your arms honistly

also get some pics of your truck i find it very interesting you have the FX4 package with the twin shifters and a TAN interor the level II packege or AKA FX4 in 02 only came with black interor...thats odd...

In 2002, there was an FX4 tan interior available with one or two exterior colors. It is kinda rare to see one though.
