stuck in 4WD

So heres what happened. I broke the u-joint on the rear drive shaft got a tow because I couldn't get my driveshaft out. Got the driveshaft out and needed to move it so I locked it int 4WD and that is where the real trouble started. I seemed to drag in 4WD and now is stuck in 4WD. Any Ideas?

I got it fixed. Pulled the 4WD vacuum lines off, cleaned them, reinstalled them, pounded on the hub alittle, got frustrated and yelled at the wife (obviously it was her fault that this had happened). It was than it hit me I had taken the yoke of of the rear diff. I wasn't stuck in 4WD, my rear would only go in reverse. I put it all back together (new yoke $23.00 Truck Parts in Scranton PA) and what do you know it works like a champ.

Mine is stuck in 4*4, but it seems like linkage is out of adjustment. Wmills71, there is a guy in Dickson city who has lots of yj parts, ad usually on craigslist (fyi)

My 4x4 light was stuck on after my last trip.. I tried everything to get it out of 4x4 until I got to work and lifted it up and realized that it was not in 4x4... My light was just on because the sensor was bad! haha
