Hi Daniel,

Are you able to move the transfer case shift lever all the way through its range of motion? In other words it is not jamming somewhere along the way?

It moves all the way. Not a single snag. Just normal feel to it.

Hello,

It sounds like the range fork is worn not engaging the transfer case fully. It could be a link adjustment as well. Here are diagrams and instruction to disassemble the transfer case to confirm the worn parts to fix the problem. Check out the diagrams (below). Let us know what happens and please upload pictures or videos of the problem.

Cheers, Ken
