There's a little plastic retainer that holds the cable on at the t-case. It's got bad habit of breaking.

BTW You can climb underneath and shift it by hand. You can also do a fix with a 3/16" nut I believe.

lol, just becareful about the transmision, be sure you are in nuetral or park. The hand brake doesn't seem to work very well on lifted rigs.

I know it seems obvious but I almost ran myself over once shifting a transmision into Drive in a van and the parking brake did not hold. LUckily it slowed it enough that i still had tiome to pop out and jump inside.

God, could you imagine explainig to your wife that you ran yourself over?

{hijack} <-------broken shift linkage on an 86 Mercury Capri let me run over myself. Reverse was too strong for the e-brake and it rolled up on my shoulder (thank god or else the door would have scraped across my face) down my chest and off my knee. Had to hop up and run after my car to stop it from hitting any parked cars. Happened right in front of my friends house while he was outside. Once I popped up and was obviously not injured, my friend LITTERALLY fell to the ground laughing. {/hijack}

Sounds like it should be on the Headboard of the Bed. Hummm... I wonder if my wife will go for that?

{Double hijack} my brother messed with his shift linkage doing something on a 73 ford Ranger. One day while sitting at the top of our steep driveway, the truck jumped from P to R and overpowered the e-brake and ran it down the hill into the corner of our house... {/hijack}

Chrysler has used plastic type devices for years to allow for crash provisions, so that in a small accident, the transfer case/transmission doesn't have any added stress. Same thing in the steering column. Easily corrected, but the 20cent repair option is sufficient for the transfer case.

I just got this part from OWTDORZ. He helped me shift it to 2WD by hand by laying underneath and holding the bushing part while I shifted. Worked great and I took into the dealer when it was convenient and they fixed it while I waited.
