Wow.... nobody had a answer to you. I know I dont right off the top. Did you find the problem? Did you turn off the jeep, put it into 2h and start up again? Sounds like some went wrong in the T.C.

Or maybe the linkage is bent and not working correctly.

Get a friend to help you, get under your jeep on the drivers side and you should be able to see the linkage for the transfercase (under the skid plate from the front looking towards the rear), if your still not surem have your friend move the lever, it'll be the part that moves.

It is possble that something knocked part of it out, or bent it. If your friend is moving it you might see where it is having problems or be able to find a way to manually put it into 2wd for the time being.

If you post this up in the TJ section you will probably get a lot more answers. Just a thought. Good luck.
