    Check the linkage underneath the cab. There is an adjuster that takes a 1/2 in i think you should be able to readjust it there

    snowjoker is correct on the adjusment.It's right where the shift rod connect to the trans lever.

    Also double check for any play or slop in the shift linkages or bushings,as this will cause the problem.If they are OK,then you may have body mount\cab problems,which causes the cab to sink lower,and throws off the adjustment
