ok so we got a bit of snow, close to an inch and some ice so while i was taking the gf home i decided i would try my 4wd again. i did and well it goes into 4wd just fine but man when i wanted to put it back into 2wd it wouldnt budge. I fought with it like crazy tried pulling it into N and 4l but nothing wouldnt move. the lever would move left and right like how you would put it into N but wouldnt move back into N. i ended up getting it into 4l but it grinded a bit and put it right back into N (and yes i know the drill with the 4wd, for 4h you can be going up to 50mph and pull it in and with 4l you must be in a slow crawl up to 5mph and must be moving a little for both) then i could get it to move a bit when trying to get it from N to 4h but it would grind. So eventually i put the tranny in N shut the Jeep off and put it back in 2wd turned jeep back on drove in R for a few feet to pop it back into 2wd all the way then didnt touch it again. damn things driving me crazy. I hate when it grinds because i feel like im going to break it. Now this is the second time this has happened to me and im wondering if the damn things broken or do i just need to adjust the shifter linkage?:confused: :banghead:

Sounds to me like a linkage issue...make sure it's adjusted properly and also lubricate all the pivot points up.

about what? s3nt3nc3d pretty much summed it up.
Was just looking for more opinions lol but since he summed it up I guess I'll have to adjust it :thumb: thanks guys!
