drops out of 4wd high

Guy's anyone ever had a situation where you shift into 4wd and after 5 min you're back in 2wd...without shifting. Anyone have a clue what the problem could be? I drive a 2004 4.0 Wrangler sport

Very likely nothing more than your transfer case's shifter mechanism's adjustment bolt has loosened & let the mechanism slip out of adjustment, letting it slip out of gear. The below photo has the bolt that holds it in adjustment. Odds are good you only need to loosen that bolt, pull the adjustment rod back into position, & then tighten the snot out of the bolt so it can't slip again.

When you have a choice, buy American.
