S10 4x4 Extend Transfer Case shifter..

Got a 1990 S10 floor shift transfer case. Did a 3 inch body lift. I would like to extend the shifter a few inches. Does anyone have knowledge of a way to extend it?

I'd go to a machine shop with a diagram of what I need and see what they can make me.

t case shifter.

When you get all set up with it extended, make sure the shifter moves far enough ahead to stay in gear. Usually with a body lift the shifter will jump out of gear under load so notch the floor out a bit to make sure it goes all the way in. Had it happen on 4 trucks so far. Better to find out ahead of time.

Why not just pull the shifter off and cut the shft, then weld in an extension. Paint it and put it back on.

cont...

The shifter I have is the push button floor shifter. How do you remove the knob? Most shifters like this you would pull the button out and remove the snap ring that holds the knob on. However, on this shifter the button is not wanting to budge. My thought was to remove the knob then see if I can extend the shaft. I would still need to be able to depress the button though.
