Only have 4th gear!

1997 TJ, 6cyl 5speed manual 155,ooo miles. While on the interstate today it poppped out of 5th and will only engage any gear in 4th now. Needless to say this makes it very hard to drive. It will shift fine but its as if there are no gears in the tranny except 4th. Any ideas?

You need a new tranny. I forget what the specific failure is I think it's the main shaft but the reason 4th works it's because its a direct drive. Or something along those lines....

If you have the grip, get a new one from Rockland. http://www.rsgear.com/products/trans...or™.aspx
