Not changing into 4H or 4L

(To start off with, im sorry if I posted this in the wrong section)

Hello all! Yesterday a friend and I went to work changing my cat-back on my jeep. We finished up and now it wont change into 4H or 4L. The lever moves very easily between the settings, but I dont hear any linkage (right term?) moving and the light on the dash does not go on.

The only things we disassembled was the exhaust and took off the skid plate. One thing that happened is when the tranny was lowering after we took the skid plate off, the rod with the "u joint" popped out. the part with the little rubber boot on it that i think slips into the tranny. we just popped it right back in. the jeep drove perfect when i took it out for a spin, but when i tried to put it in 4H to get over some snow, nothing happened. Is there anything you think could had slipped or undid to make this happen? Thanks very much!!

Also, my jeep is an 06, 6 speed 4.0

Sorry if my terms are incorrect; Im fairly new at car mechanics
