TJ Stuck in gear?

I have a 98 TJ I picked up after sitting for about 4 months. It didn't have reverse for months prior, after having the transfer case replaced. On my way out of town I went to shift into 4th and the a sound like a boulder was in the tranny happened and it lost 1st and 2nd. When I got home I turned it off and was jiggling the shifter and it is now locked in 4th or reverse. I tried revving it to get it to shift into nuteral, but the shifter wont budge at all, and ideas?

This happened to me 2 weeks ago... I'm sorry to send the bad news but you're looking at a Tranny rebuild. It ran me about 1,500 with a new clutch installed too. Best of luck

This may be irrelevant lime I think most of my posts are. I had an old Datsun pickup back in the day and it did the same thing. What happened was the boot on top of the transmission rotted out and a rock got wedged in the shift tower. It was a big mess but I didn't have to replace the tranny.

Your post may not be irrelevant.
We need for people to post their opinions. You never know. Yours may be the answer the thread poster is looking for.

As long as your response is not a hair-brained idea. (i.e., my motor was making a strange noise. Turns out, there was a squirrel running around, under my hood.)

Always feel free to give your opinions.

Agreed, but that was also with a new clutch install/2 year warranty from a pro shop
