Alaska TJ 5 months later, I reinstalled my skid plate (not knowing that I shouldn't have driven with it off for very long). The reinstallation fixed a problem that I has with noises in the drive train, but all of a sudden, my transfer case linkage needEd to be adjusted again. I guess that now I know why it needed to be adjusted in the first place. That skid plate is holding the drive train up and in its proper place and alignment.

Alaska TJ Thanks for the comments. I got under the jeep today and checked out the situation. There was no obvious issues that I could see that resulted from my drive shaft rebuild, but I had my gal put it into and put of 4hi repeatedly before I did a quick adjustment on the linkage that seemed to fix the issue for now. I never really had checked out the linkage before, but it was relatively straight forward. Thanks again!

Shelby427 Yeah some brain child at Chrysler decided mounting one side of the bracket for the shifter on the T case and the other on the body. Could be the shifter bushings popped out or the bracket came off.

Kota7x You may want to try to adjust the linkage on the Transfercase to see if you can get it back to where it was.

4WD shift lever position wrong in 4HI

Last weekend, I removed and rebuilt my front driveshaft. Now, if I attempt to shift into 4HI, it will go into 4HI, but in order to do so, I must pull up (into the 4HI lever position) and then to the right and up a bit (getting close to the Neutral position).

What's going on here? I rebuilding my driveshaft, all I did was replace the U-joints and installed a new ball centering kit.

My jeep is mostly stock with 10.5x31 tires.
