ok, here's the deal.
I finally took my 04 Rubicon to the body shop to get if fixed after getting rear ended. Its been there 15 days and so i call up to see when it will be ready. they say it's painted, but they're having trouble getting it into gear...

me: What??? it was working fine when i left it there!!!

them: well, is there some sort of trick to get it gear?

me: no. i'll be there it 20 minutes

so i get there and it's parked facing a wall in their shop and some jackass had pulled up the shifter for the transfer case. pissed

as it stands, the t-case lever will move in N from 4H to 4L, but doesnt seem to fully engage either, and wont go into 2H. The guy tried to back it up, but all that happens is horrible grinding. He also said that the 4WD light on the dash was on, but went out.

they really want to believe that it's a fuse, but the 20A offroad fuse in the engine bay is intact (does this even have anything to do with it? i would think that it has something to do with driving the pnuematic lockers) then he showed me the fuses behind the glove box and said he'd pull them all to check. it would be nice, but some how i doubt that's the problem (maybe i'll luck out and the FSM will prove me wrong).

so i thought, maybe if we push it back and then i drive it forward it may go back into 2H easier, even though you are supposed to be able to shift out of 4H at a standstill. tried that a couple times, no dice.

so i'm out of ideas. i told them to leave it alone, as i couldn't stand to see that fat bastard putting all his weight on my shifters trying to force them into gear.

i'm about search the fsm, but any help is much appreciated.
sorry for the long rant.
Imran

There are no fuses that control the engagement of the transfer case. It is not an electronic setup like most other currently produced vehicles.

I suggest checking the t-case linkage underneath the vehicle.

Is the jeep lifted, and a transfer case drop installed?

If so, the bracket for the transfer case shifter could be broken.
they are easy to look at from under the jeep.

Either body lifted or not, the handle for the tcase does not go directly to the tcase. IF you look there is a mechanism of sorts between the 2. Im guessing that its either way out of whack or damaged from the wreck. It wouldnt take very much to get it enough out of adjustment to cause that issue.

How bad was it hit? Anyone check to make sure that the tcase itself didnt suffer some damage?
