Re: Shifting into 4x4
I really hate to admit this however, it was as simple as sliding it to the right a bit, because I also have a 98 Dodge Ram and I'm used to just pulling back, not having to slide it to the right. However, it moved back, it didn't move quite as far as it should have. I didn't really have time to play around with it but I'm sure that if I play with it enough, it should work just fine because I talked to the previous owner and he told me that, the jeep occational was put into 4x4 High but never into 4x4 Low and was never put into neutral on the lever, for that matter. I think, that it's just going to take some time and a little big of patients and after that, it should be just fine. I'm going to try to let it roll down my drive way a little bit probably later to see if letting it roll and shift at the same time may help.
Also, to help answer a few questions, it's a 94, manual, 4 cylinder, no AC, and no modifications have ever been done ie, no lifts, no additions, nothing what so ever, the previous owner bought it new in 94 and drove it back and forth to work everyday on the expressway. It does have some undercariage rust though so, that also may be affecting the who situation but that's quite normal for vehicles her in Michigan due to our harsh winters and all the salt that we use.
And thanks again to everyone who helped out, I really apreciated everything that you posted.
