    I hope thatís all it is for ya but that doesnít make sense to me. When it doesnít fully engage at the linkage you get grinding and popping out of gear or popping into neutral. You described it still sending normal power to the rear but completely stopped front axle from turning which makes me think itís something internal like the fork or sliding clutch jammed on something broken not allowing the chain to turn. But I havenít been inside a jkís t case personally, disclaimer.

    Jeep jk locks up in 4x4

    I would say gears, but you said it hasnít been re geared. Did you use 4x4 before you switched the bushing? Do you have a programmer?

    It sounds to me like it is not disengaging the high range gear, and then when low engages it binds up. Shifting back to high, low disengages like it should and everything works.

    What I don't know is what could be causing it, as I haven't been inside of one of these so I'm not sure how the shift mechanism is set up.

    From the research Iíve done Jeep t case issues are a dark hole, everyone knows how to replace a bushing but not much besides that.

    Gears are in tact and fine, 4x4 was used last winter. Only info Iíve found is if tires are different size and air pressure they could be spinning at different speeds?

    Disconnect your drive shafts from the TC and disconnect the TC shift cable at the TC. Then try to shift the TC at the TC between 2H, 4H, N, and 4L while someone else is in the cab working the transmission. If everything works fine then youíve eliminated the TC as your problem. If you still have the problem, then youíve probably ruled out the linkage and anything at the axles.

    Changes the transfer case fluid and didnít see any metal flakes. Drove it after and still having the same issue. More than likely will take it to my 4x4 shop at the end of the month

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
