Only 4lo works

I am having tcase problems AGAIN. Thisntimeni was left stranded with my wife in the side of the freeway.

I was driving normal and it started doing the clunk again and before I knew it it was completely disengaged and I found myself revving a hell amout trying to get it in gear. Once on the the side road I found I only have 4lo.

Why do I not have 2wd or 4hi?!

The linkage slipper is on the main linkage from your 4wd handle to the t-case linkage rod. Its adjustable to let you move your 4wd lever, to a comfortable position for you to grab. However if it works loose(common), or youhave it adjusted too far in one direction or another, you will lose the positions on 1 end of the sweep.

i.e., if its out too far, you can get neutral and 4low, and if its in too far, you can get 2wd and 4wd.

Look on the main shaft coming off of your 4wd shifter, you are looking for a small section of c-channel with a bolt screwed into it, the bolt is the locking mechanism.

OK. Now need to determine if it is in you shifter or your t-case. Disconnect the rod going to the flat metal lever on your transfer case. Once that is done see if your shifter will move. If it will then it is in your transfer case. If not it is in your shifter.

I will say however if once you disconnect the shifter from the transfer case, and everything in the shifter works fine and also you can manually shift your Transfercase it could be your linkage is off and putting everything in a bind. But I would start there and see what you find out
