adjusting shift linkage Q

Ok so lately as i mentioned in a prior post I'm having issues when I shift down to low to cross mudholes etc I come out and try to go back to 2x4 high I start throttling away and hit the rev limiter and suddenly a grind pop as it shifts from low into high, So I'm currently adjusting my linkage trying to make it go into high just a little bit sooner on the "tree" on the left side so it might not lag in low... to do so I tried adjusting my linkage rod to make it longer this appears to have had the opposite effect because now it doesnt hit reverse till the very bottom of the tree and it hits low with more of a space between handle and top,

I'm assuming I should undo the bolts and make the rod shorter but for some reason this just doesnt seem to compute with me, any advice is appreciated since im trying to be ready to ride in 45 min

Think I figured it out, the end of the linkage is a reverse thread so the jam nut can be a proper thread, so when i thought i made rod longer i actually made it shorter...

I dropped the holding nut down into my skidplate and had other buisness to attend to, I'll let you know as soon as I magnet the nut out and slap er back together, I'll be trying it out next weekend
