    After using 4 low and then going back into 2 high I have had it pop into neutral several times. The Shifter doesn't move from 2 high. No gear grinding even when I shove it to 4 high and back to get it back in gear. First time this has happened.

    I know the passenger side engine mount is shot. I do have a spare transfer case around. Anything I can check before swapping the T-Case?

    Move it into position and disconnect linkage. Verify by feel of hand on transfer case control it feels all the way in position. Then see if it jumps out.

    Remembering the Alamo might not help you here, but a proper working parking brake will.

    The nylons are broken off of the shift forks. Very common problem in older cases or ones that have been run low on oil.

    Has 200k on it at least, not surprised if it's worn out. Don't recall if it was swapped with the trans for awhile or not. If not it has 1/4 mil miles.

    Park brake I use often, but, good point! @Will L.

    For the heck of it I searched some more, found one with $65 shipping. Ferms link looks like a bargain nowo_O

    I got mine online from american powertrain. The New chain was cheaper than I could get anywhere including shipping and I had them throw in some nylon pads. If you are splitting the case anyway put in a new chain. Its worth it for about a hundred bucks.

    Im in Canada. I know the pain of shipping. Im thrilled Rockauto does reasonable shipping here now. They're great. Couldn't find the nylon pads with them though...

    Good news! It's not the transfer case! :D

    Bad news! It's doesn't matter as it still comes out with the transmission. :facepalm: Trans is taking time to grab reverse or 1st.
