Unhappy PLEASE HELP! 2000 Jeep Wrangler

Haveing Problems With my 2000 Jeep Wrangler Shifter?

2000 Jeep Wrangler SE 4Cyl 2.5L 4WD (Transfer Case231 J takes ATV+3 OR+4) (Trans takes NV3550)

So this is what's going on. My transfer Case cracked when I was on the highway long story short. I replaced it with an new duplicate transfer case went in perfect got it all nice and sealed up. I put everyting back the way I found it (cords, hoses exc.) started up my jeep and now I try to shift into gear nothing happens.... Engine runs, tranfer case is good. Changed the transmission fluid. Transmisson is where its supose to be.... I feel like when I shift its not catching anything (You can hear gears moving when I shift into reverse but bearly) maybe I messed the shifter up somehow. I even read something about bleeding the The slave cylinder but my clutch feels fine. I just dont understand my jeep was still moving when my broken Transfer Case was on now everything is new wont buge please HELP ME!!

Is the transfer case in 2hi or is it stuck in neutral? You might just have a linkage issue.

Is the transfer case from an auto trans? I know the shafts between them are different lengths. You can't swap them unless you change the input shaft in the transfer case. Why did your TC blow up?

That's my bet too, I'm betting the new transfer case is simply in Neutral.
When you have a choice, buy American.
