Default 1994 GMC Jimmy 4.3 W

Okay so I bought this truck not running for $400.
The interior is in great shape the motor was all there.
So after finding out it sat for almost four years.
I changed the fuel pump, and fuel filter.
Low and behold she cranked right up.
Since then I've been driving it everyday.
My four wheel drive crapped out (its the push button on the dash)
so today i took the encoder motor off and am just gonna manual engage the t-case
my question is will my front actuator still engage the front wheels?
I know this is the build thread just a question
anyhow i'm wanting to put some 31's on her
planning on doing a 3in body lift?
a 1.5 t-bar crank and 2in shackles in the back
swartik if i'm in the wrong section please relocate me/ thanks
would i need the t-bar crank and the shackles if i did the body lift to fit the 31's

Wtg on a great buy!!! Try searching in here for actuator or ? & see other posts.

As for the "would i need the t-bar crank and the shackles if i did the body lift to fit the 31's" ... on my 2002 LS 2dr it fit 31's with the 3" BL.
Personally I'd still do a 2" shackle in the rear to get rid of the (sure to be there now) sagging of the rear. But remember that a 2" shackle will only give you 1" of lift because you're only lifting 1/2 the leaf spring.
