Hello all,
My 2002 ccsb went down on the way home to fl. 200 miles later it was at a shop. They installed a new ford transmssion. 300 miles after picking it up i saw the 4x4 on the floor was in N. I then pulled over and put it in 2wd hi properly. Off again I went 30 seconds later no lower to the wheels. Got to the ranch put it in N dash and TC then attempted 4x4 low to no avail. It was as if the handle had reached max travel and it was impossible to move the handle further. Upon inspection underneath there were no obstructions.

Don't know about a manual shift into 2wd, but with the auto selector to get into 2wd ya have to be in neutral and brake depressed. Check your owners manual or download the manual if you don't have one.

Welcome to TheDieselStop :smile2:

If you were moving down the road for 300 miles and the t-case shifter was truly in neutral (although I don't know of a way to tell that it is), you probably shifted the t-case into neutral when you messed with it. They may have gotten the linkage misadjusted somehow. There's only a little bit of adjustment available with the bolt holes in the shifter mount. but there are detents that make you move the lever sideways a little to get it into 4L.

You should be able to get it into gear, but you may have to mess with it a bit. Try shutting the engine down so the tranny output shaft isn't moving, then try shifting it again.

If that doesn't fix it, crawl underneath and take a look at the linkage, making sure all the bolts are tightened up, etc.

The manual shifter is truly shift on the fly. As long as the front hubs are locked, you can shift into and out of any position by carefully matching engine speed with the driveshaft speed (aka float shifting)

Good luck
