    Product Description

    The Novak Cable Shifter Kit
    This Jeep transfer case cable shifter assembly replaces everything below the factory shift handle, including the z-bar linkage, tunnel mount bracket, transfer case mount bracket and shifter pivot.

    The factory shift handle is entirely retained.

    All necessary hardware is included with the Novak SK2XC and installation can be done in under two hours.

    Adjusting the Novak cable shifter for optimum use is straightforward and this is detailed in our instruction package.

    Review by David from Zionsville, Indiana on 9/16/2015
    Its a shame that Jeep could not have designed things better, but this makes shift buttery smooth. The linkage system in the Jeep before was garbage. If you have any issues at all with a transfer case shifting, get this installed. Now to the installing part. If you have not had your skid plate off your TJ in a while this will be a really big pain. Plan on broken rusty bolts and some cruising. After I was able to drop the transmission and get to the bolts on top of the transmission it took an hour to get the old parts our and this installed and back together. I would recommend a shop install this just because it can be a real pain with rusty bolts.
