    Default Transfer Case

    A couple of months ago our 4-High went out while on the trail. Thankfully we were able to get it back in to 2-wheel drive and make it out. It has not worked since. This past weekend, we got stuck in some deep snow and we had to try to put it in 4-high and it worked. It looks like our Jeep fixed itself. Anyone ever had this happen? I think that the gears just could not catch or line up correctly and they realigned properly. I think we are going to go to the trails this weekend to try it out to see if we are good to go.
    What do you guys think??

    Check the shift linkage under the Jeep.

    The newer Jeeps linkage has a bracket on the tub, and one on the tranny, that holds the lever.

    The linkage sometimes will 'pop' out when the Jeep flexes, and can be a bear to get into 4HI, and usually won't go into 4LO.

    Crazy thing was, we were able to use 4Lo but 4Hi was a no go. Everything underneath checked out fine. It is just crazy. Maybe we just have the coolest jeep in the world that fixes itself. Lol.

    When it happened the first time, did you look to see if anything got stuck in the linkage? Sounds kinda odd, but I wouldn't look a gift horse in the mouth.
