New member needs help!

Hey everybody. I've been one the forum for a while but have never introduced myself. My name is Justin and about a week ago I purchased my first jeep. A black 98 wrangler. It's been awesome everyday up until today. I drive it to work due to inclement weather and once there noticed that something was unbolted and hanging low on the passenger side underneath the jeep. At the time i didn't think anything of it until I went to drive home and couldn't put it into second or forth gear. That's when I noticed my gear shift was considerable lower than normal. Eventually I was able to put it in second and forth but it made noises while engaged. I'm no mechanic so it would be greatly appreciated if someone could tell me what the problem is and how to fix it. It should also be noted that yesterday I went to use my 4 wheel drive and that acted funny. After I disengaged it the jeep acted a little funny when going though gears. I took pictures of what it looks like under the jeep. I apologize if the pictures are bad but I was on the side of a highway at night in the rain. Thanks for the help in advance and I look forward to talking with the rest of you.

Justin, Welcome Aboard!

Just off the top of my head I would guess that maybe your transmission mount is broken or loose.

But this is where we welcome new members; post your question in the TJ forum here so fellow owners may see it: TJ Jeep Wrangler Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum

Welcome to the forum and the wonderful world of the Jeep Owner. Its the skid plate for the trans and T-case bolts either fell out or rusted out. Time to do a little work. If you need any help check in on the TJ page.
