Question Transfer Case Problems?

Hi Everyone,

Puchased my first Jeep 2 weeks ago And i Love IT!!. This weekend i took it to some local trails. It seems like i cant get her into 4L. Its a 2004 TJ with 5 speed manual transmission and ive read the manual and are my doing something wrong?

1. start rolling less than 5kmph
2. put tranny in N
3. pull up to 4H and... then is there another click for 4L?

4H works fine

but it only comes up one click

any input would be appreciated mabye Transfer case problems??

If you pull straight back for 4low it won't go in, you have to move the shifter over a little to the right I believe. And you really don't need to be fooling IMO. If not does the jeep have a body lift? Many people have stated that it becomes hard to shift the transfer caes w one.

Transfer case is 2H-4H-N-4L

From 4H push the lever away from you and pull back. That will be neutral, then from there, pull back while rolling forward at a slow speed (2-3 mph) and that will be 4L. It moves just like the picture on the top of the shifter.

Not perfect, but its the same movement pattern

I would be willing to bet the beer in my fridge that it is in your linkage. Even pulling back, the lever will shift to the right to allow you to go into N and 4lo.

It was the linkage, Your beer is safe. Was playing with it in the parking lot and saw that the linkage was rubbing.. a little grinding fixed her up. Wow does 4L ever crawl!! cant wait to try it out
