    I have Novak. Had it for years. Required for my UCF tummy tuck. Never been a problem.
    The key to the 4 Hi to 4 Lo shift or vice versa is have the Jeep transmission in neutral and have your Jeep rolling slowly, like less than 1 mph. Then move the lever very very quickly. You'll feel it "pop" into gear with experience.
    A properly adjusted Novak is a dream. The factory linkages is crap, but it works smoothly if done as described.

    What did you end up doing? No way, no how is the cable harder to adjust than the stock linkage. It's a straightforward install, too. 2 to 3 hours for a typical slow going driveway job. Adjustment is silly simple.

    Greater concern is the popping out of the selected range. Likely the stock linkage as pointed out, but small chance the box is wanky.

    Yeah a follow up, end solution would be nice. The daughters TJ pops out of high range a couple of times. I looked at the repair manual and was going to try adjusting it. The replacement linkages I have seen always look to be for a lifted Jeep. This particular Jeep is low miles for the year (70k) and has seen minimal off road use so doubtful the case is wanky.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
