Is it lifted, it may be too high and your linkage brackets may need to be relocated.

4L is basically for crawling (lierally, not just on rocks). What are your rpms and speed when it pops out?

Lengthend Cable

It sounds like a cable adjustment issue.

There's an incredibly week adjustment point on the transfer case to put your Jeep into 4 low. It's just a simple bolt. 10mm I think.

A slacking cable could keep you from getting into 4 low, especially if a former owner was hard on the shift knob inside the cab.

I have the same problem on my 2000 TJ. I'm going to check this out tonight. Maybe this is the answer.
