Any additional information on the service history of the transmission - fluid/filter changes and service intervals?

Any previous signs of trouble?

Were you parked on an incline?

Have you checked the ATF level of the transmission? Make sure the engine is RUNNING while you check the ATF level or you'll get an erroneous reading on the dipstick. Also look at the condition of the ATF, it is clear/red or does it look dark and smell burned?

For it quit suddenly with no warning usually one of two things, the fluid has drained from the converter [faulty drain back valve] Let it idle a few mins and fill the converter, or the ears that drive the front pump have sheared off or the pump has failed. Is it possible the transfer case got bumped into neutral? Loose, bent or broken linkage.

Cheap and easy first.
As bubbabud suggests, make sure the TC is in 2H. Going under the Jeep to be sure is best. Of course, do this with the engine off and the park brake set.
Next is as bubbabud suggests, allow the Jeep to idle for a while and then try it. I'd run it until the engine and transmission are up to operating temp.
After that if it still isn't working, I'd change the fluid and filter.

If it still isn't working after that, hopefully another poster will have an economical solution.
I'd have to have it towed to a transmission shop, but if you're adventurous, you might attempt a repair. Do you have a Factory Service Manual?

Keep us posted on what you find and the results.

Good Luck, L.M.
