Transfer case linkage

Hey guys, so my jeep yj project when I bought it had been sitting for 2 years. Everything was froze up and I had to loosen it up. My transfer case lever/linkage does not move an inch, it is stuck in 2 wheel drive. I was wondering if I should force it loose or is there some other better way to do it. Any advice is appreciated

The first thing I'd do is soak the linkage a couple times a day in your favorite penetrating oil. Try to work the shifter without forcing it. Hopefully in a few days it'll start to free up. Just keep at it.

Other posters may have other or better suggestions.

Good Luck, L.M.
