Description
Ditch the horribly complicated stock 231 transfer case shift linkage for our smooth and adjustable ball and socket setup. The linkage includes our own shift tab which relocates the throw to the top of the transfer case, allowing for a much simpler linkage. The kit retains the use of the factory shifter as well. The HD rod ends are sealed to prevent grease wash-out, and will not transfer noise into the cabin. 

Please note: 

If you have an aftermarket transmission cross-member or transfer case drop, you'll need our shifter extension hardware included in the "231 drop kit". This allows for more adjust-ability in the linkage to dial in the ideal geometry for your specific setup. 

Will work with: 

- 87-01 Cherokee and Comanche
- 4.0L Engine with the AW4 Trans

Ships USPS Flat Rate. We will ship internationally! Please contact us for a quote!

The kit includes: 
- 2 rod ends
- 2 jam nuts
- 2 lock washers
- 1 spacer washer (shift arm)
- 2 hex nuts
- 316 Stainless stud
- 1 Replacement lock nut/washer 
- Zinc plated shift lever
- Full Color Instructions

The drop kit also includes: 
- Console shifter extension tab
- 2 bolts
- 2 lock washers
- 2 hex nuts 
- Full Color Instructions

Rating Great product at a great price
 
With little modification I installed this kit on my manual transmission equipped Jeep Cherokee. For the automatic Cherokee's, this kit appears to drop right in with nothing else needed. For the quality of the components, great price, and excellent customer service, boostwerks is the place to go.

I WAS GOING TO GET THE FST VERSION BUT HE DECIDED TO NOT WANT TO SUPPLY PARTS ANYMORE. I FOUND THIS ONE ON THE FORUMS AND I HAVE TO SAY FOR THE PRICE YOU CANNOT BEAT IT. ITS A PRETTY SIMPLE INSTALL WORKS WELL ONCE ADJUSTED RIGHT. ONE THIS I DO HAVE TO SAY IS THE NYLOCK NUTS MAKE IT A BIT OF A BEAR TO TIGHTEN DOWN. IF YOU BUY THIS KIT GET SOME NON LOCK NUTS AND SOME LOCK WASHERS AND REGULAR WASHERS TO USE AS INSTALL HARDWARE. IT MAKES IT MUCH MORE OF A BREEZE. BUT THIS PRODUCT WILL BE ON ANY AND ALL XJS I OWN OR WORK ON

Rating Awesome product!
 
When my 4wd linkage came apart on the trail I knew it was time for a aftermarket one. Searched around and found this one on the forums. For the price it is super easy to install. Once you get it dialed in by adjusting it, it shifts better than stock. Great product, defiantly recommend.

Installed mine yesterday, chose to abandon in place the two brackets because I didn't want to remove the belly pan, driveshaft, drivers seat and carpet, but everything fit nicely and the shifting is so smooth now.

Questions and Answers
Q: Will this kit work on XJs with lift kits? Specifically a 3" kit?
Asked by: MB - 11/6/2014
A: Hey Marty,

The kit will work with any lift kit. However, If your using a transfer case drop you'll need some additional hardware (just select from the drop down menu).

Thanks!

Q: What is the difference between the 231HD kit without transfer case case drop as opposed to the one with the transfer case drop?
Asked by: Jesse - 6/12/2015
A: The drop kit includes additional hardware to extend the throw of the shifter. If you're using an aftermarket crossmember or long arm system, I recommend getting the drop kit as it' offers more adjustment.

Q: How about compatibility on a ZJ with a 231?
Asked by: Jeff - 9/11/2014
A: At this point in time, we simply don't know. The linkage was designed specifically for the XJ chassis, but it may work with others. However we don't have any plans on testing it with other models.

If your willing to try it out, go for it! I can accept returns as long as nothing has been damaged. You will be responsible for the return shipping however.

Thanks!

Q: Does this linkage work on a TJ Wrangler with an AW4 trans and 231 tcase?
Asked by: Casey - 6/20/2014
A: Hey Casey,

The linkage will not work on a TJ due to the placement of the shift lever being almost directly above the TC shift sector. Currently this kit is only designed to work with the XJ chassis and 231 case.

Thanks again!
