Slips out of 4hi
It seems that every time I put my Jeep into 4hi it slips right out almost immediately. Doesn't matter if I'm in first or reverse it just doesn't want to stay there, 4lo is fine i believe. I have 2002 standard if that makes any difference. Any little things I can possibly do to correct this?

Mine does the same exact thing and its an auto. The t-case was remanufactured and it still does it. Dont mean to hijack your thread but i hope someone can provide a possible solution.

Mine also has this problem and I'm looking at this.

More than likely that there's nothing more seriously wrong than the transfer case shifter mechanism external to the transfer case has simply slipped out of adjustment. There is a single bolt with a 1/2" head on it that the mechanism depends on to hold everything in adjustment and if/when it slips, it can become impossible to get the transfer case to stay in gear or go into the desired gear.

Here's a photo of that bolt circled in red, the mechanism is of course underneath the Jeep. Loosen that bolt, pull the shift rod back in a tad to where you may be able to see a mark in the rod from that bolt where it used to be positioned. Get underneath the Jeep to watch the mechanism while a helper pulls it into 4Hi so you can see how it works and understand the issue.

Thanks Jerry as usual, probably won't be for a few days but I'll see if this remedies the problem.

If you have any sort of body lift that's going to throw off your linkage, too. Even with a MML I still had to install the bracket for the body lift since it didn't effect the tcase enough. Before I installed the bracket it wouldn't cycle through and didn't even go in 4 hi
