Unhappy Help Me!!!

Hey guys, my name's Jim and I recently purchased a '97 TJ. Just about an hour ago I put it into 4 wheel high (not the first time) and when I let up on the clutch all I heard was a hellacious grind from the transfer case. 2 high works fine as does 4 low. If I ease the trans. case lever the slightest bit back towards 2 high it'll engage and drive, but I'm wary. If I pull the lever all the way back to 4 high (where it stops moving backwards befrore the neutral position) it just grinds when I let off the clutch. What the hell is going on? It was working fine last weekend.

I'd appreciate any help I can get.
Jim (Caveman)

If possible you may want to squeez under her and check the linkage and spray it down with some lube. Check it real good and make sure there is nothing jamed, stuck or catchin in the mech.

usually the linkages from the lever to the transfer case are loose when it does that, mine did that last weekend. Just crawl under and take a look and try to move things with ur hands.
