    LD3,
    Depending on year... The wranglers have a plastic bushing that fails with heat/age/abuse/etc. The part is designed to fail before breaking something else in the linkage/tranny/trans case. This bushing is on both ends of the linkage. One at shifter (trans or transfer case) end. One at tranny/transfer case itself. Its a 3.00 part that scares the crap out of people when they fail. I keep several extras in my jeep JIC. The failure happens just as you describe it. Its happened on my JK already. My buddys TJ has gone a few times, but he abuses it. I believe that was what you encountered. Several homebrew (trailside) fixes for this up to and including zip ties...LOL

    LOL. That is me version 3.0! (My third kid). He is a mini me. Loves to shoot, workout, hike, canoe, etc. We were at 10 yards shooting ruger 22/45's and I was looking at the target stapled to the plywood and I knew he was shooting but I couldnt see the impacts on the targets. I stopped him and asked him what he was shooting at, and he had put 9mm brass on the top of the plywood and that is what he was shooting. My old eyes couldnt see the 9mm brass. 8 years old and 80 SOLID lbs. When we do a little rolling for fun, he gives my 12 year old all he wants.

    I think one of several older 4wd found in the dry west , no rust etc Have rebuilt. any older mitsu/jeep/toy/ trooper/ or get a home **** dune buggy with low tech gear on it they still make all the old stuff but no one wants to make a 60 HP dune bug with a carb dis cap etc . everyone want elec hi tech hi HP hi breakdown loud junk on it. The only thing I would add to it would be a set of mat tracks and skis for the front. O also if you can find one a UNIMOG>

    I presently have a 94 Jeep 4.0. It has about 275, bought it with a little over 160,ooo on it. Bought it for a 1000 and put 500 in it to pass inspection. The main problem was I had to replace the as tank.

    It is rough riding but has been dependable for me.
