O/T Anyone else have luck this good.
Does this happen to other people also, or just me?
We wanted to get an already built Cherokee for Jeepwife for a daily driver/mild trail rig, and found one that was all built and in great condition. We looked at it Sunday, drove it, tested everything and it all worked so we bought it.
We were about and hour away from home and stopped at a gas station, then I got in the XJ and started playing with stuff. We started to leave and she yelled that it was still in part-time 4wd, but the t-case shifter was in 2wd, so we started trying to get it out of part-time to no avail. We tried all gear positions, speed & everything I could think of but wouldn't come out. We went slowly up and down a side road and tried (manual says it can shift at speed) and the t-case handle finally moved to the part-time location to match the dash indicator. When I went to shift back to 2wd there was a loud clunk followed by the sound of a t-case not quite in the right gear.
Upon looking I managed to break the trunion bolt off the t-case shift linkage and it was between gears, pull the linkage off, shifted it manually to 2wd and drove home to buy parts Monday morning.
