I was just at Adams today to pick up a joint rebuild kit. That place is great and they were very friendly and helpful.
I had a couple different things going on. My transfer case position switch was not working correctly, so the light was showing 4WD High while I was in 2WD. Since this Jeep is new to me, I didn't want to take any chances, so that is why I decided to stop and troubleshoot it. I wasn't sure if the transfer case linkage was off and if it wasn't shifting out of 4WD, or if it was just the light.
I reached under to see if I could feel the which position the transfer case was in, and I must have bumped the transmission shifter cable. Well when I got back in the Jeep, I noticed I couldn't put it in gear. The cheap plastic grommet that holds the shifter cable in place was just worn and fell apart. So I zip tied that back in place so I could drive home.
I fixed the light, and I think I am ready to hits the trails again after I rebuild the joint tomorrow.
Next on my list is a CB and a compressor.
Let know when you are doing another ride, so I can come along.
