Well guys, this is why I can't have nice things. Got the trouble code on my dad's Gladiator cleared, he wanted to go out and see if it would come back. We decided on Yankee Hill because it was close. Got only a couple miles in, decided 4LO was unnecessary, came to a stop, shifted down to 4HI (or so I thought), put the transmission in 1st BOOM big ol pop from underneath me. Look down at the transfer case shifter and it's more in neutral than 4HI, somewhere in between. From there I cant move the transfer case shifter at all. Get under the jeep and try and move the selecter arm on the side of the transfer case, won't really budge, just wiggle a little. Disconnected the transfer case shift linkage from the selecter arm and tried to move the selecter arm again to 2HI. No dice. Had to get towed down by my dad, fortunately the TC was not making any horrible sounds as I was being towed. I'm praying to the heavens I didn't just grenade this TC, I'll never be able to find a replacement for a Rubicon.
Can anybody recommend a good mechanic or 4x4 shop who would know how to diagnose a TC?
Legitimately heartbroken right now
