it maybe your shifter cable came off for the auto shifter, does it feel like its moving back and forth easier?

you can pop the cup hold/shifter surround off and take a look here some directions to get it off https://jkowners.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11960

It's probably that little plastic shift linkage. Search for "plastic shift linkage" on the forum and it'll pop up. Others have had the problem with the transfer case linkage.

My dog is worried about the economy because Alpo is up to 99 a can. That's almost $7.00 in dog money.
