      Replaces Mechanical Linkage. If your Jeep Wrangler’s mechanical linkage starts getting problematic, you can get this Steinjager Transfer Case Cable Shifter as the replacement. This kit is designed to get rid of your problematic stock shifter linkage. It is a complete kit and replaces everything between the shifter and the transfer case. Enjoy a worry-free driving with a fresh set of cable shifter in your Jeep.

      High-Quality Kit. This adjustable transfer case cable shifter kit comes with all the necessary components for a complete replacement. It comes with stainless steel cable core and cable rods that ensure your shifter gets that 4-inch radius without kinking or affecting the movement of the transfer case’s inner core. All the brackets included are finished with durable powder coating for great rust and corrosion resistance.

      Bolt-On Installation. Although installation requires some mechanical knowledge for this kit, the process is still a simple, bolt-on one. The kit attaches to the base of the OEM handle of your Jeep and easily mounts with the supplied hardware. An instruction manual comes with the kit and an installation video is available on Steinjager’s website for visual reference.

      Limited 12-Month Warranty. This transfer case cable shifter kit includes 12-month warranty coverage from Steinjager. This covers defects in materials and workmanship only. Customers will be granted warranty coverage as long as they are able to mail-in the completely-filled warranty card within 30 days after the purchase.

      Application. This Steinjager Transfer Case Cable Shifter kit is designed for use on all 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler TJ models. Please note that this kit only fits 231 transfer cases and it will not work on a Rubicon.

      Technical Note. If you have a 2002-2004 with the NV3550 manual transmission, there may be an interference issue with the reverse switch. You may need to purchase a reverse switch for a 2000-2001 Wrangler with the same transmission. The older switch will have a long pig tail attached to the sensor to clear this kit.

        Worth the money

        Easy install and works super smooth Had little to no adjustment if you followed the instructions. A lot more durable than any of the others.

        5 2006 Wrangler - Anonymous

        Now I have 4 low

        The stock linkage on my tj was bent and didnt adjust properly to engage 4 low all the way causing it to pop out. This kit fixed that issue entirely. Do the holes match I used my own hardware to bolt onto the tub side no big deal. But once it was installed and adjusted it's a night and day difference between the smoothness and confidence of knowing what gear I'm in. Did this in 2 hours, alone and without dropping the skid plate, no body lift just a 4" suspension lift.

        It is a great product. I lobe it because I have a 4 in suspension and a 1 inch body lift and I was struggling to put in 4 wheel drive because it was binding. Now I have no issues I just wish it came with directions

        Fixed the misalignment

        With a lift and a transfer case drop, the linkage gets misaligned between the linkage part on the body and the pin on the transfer case. With this cable linkage, there is no issue wrt misalignment.

        1 2002 Wrangler - GregC12345

        High hopes proved wishful thinking.

        No instructions despite product description clearly stating they are included. Kit was also missing the replacement shift arm. I installed it with the stock shift arm anyway and it suffers the same issues as before... slipping out of 4 low. For the cost, these issues are unacceptable.

        Transfer Case Cable Shifter

        My order came missing parts, the plates were the wrong size and the holes were not only off for lining up they weren't round.

        Nice kit

        Easy as heck to install. Downfall no instructions but if you understand the basics you don’t need them.

        2 2006 Rubicon - OhWin

        You can MAKE it work... If you try hard.

        Doesn't come with instructions. The transfer case bracket had different size holes drilled in it and it wouldn't line up with the bolts. Needed to be re-bent in order to fit properly. Then the tub side bracket has these massive 3/8 holes drilled in it to match the holes in the tub... however the supplied hardware is a number 12 machine screw with regular washers, and standard screws. No washers were supplied for one side and no lock washers were provided. (-1 Star). So I used some 3/8 standard bolts and fender washers. I also cut the end off a 15/16 wrench so it was short enough to tighten down the cable to the brackets. Ultimately I made it work. However for $150 I would have liked it to come with the proper hardware, hole sizes, bends, and actually be a bolt on piece of kit. Why bother powder coating it if people have to re-fabricate it in order to get it to work properly?

        Cable Shifter

        I lifted my tj 4 inches and started having binding issues with the factory 4x4 linkage. This product was simple to install and never had issues again.
