How do I adjust my transmission shifter linkage?

I've been doing some research on my shifting issue, and I think an improperly adjusted shifter cable may be part of my problem (especially since my problem started when the shifter was SLAMMED from park to drive by one of my idiot friends) Anyways, I have a 99 4.0 with an auto, how do I adjust it? Thanks!

the shift linkage attaches to the trans on the driver side, you can get under there and have a buddy shift it and see how off it is. there is also a way to adjust it with a voltmeter as outlined in the factory service manual

Blah blah blah blah.

Is it something that needs to be tightened or what? I've never messed with one, so I have no idea what I'm doing. I'm quite capable of doing the work, I am just not familiar with jeeps or automatic transmissions.

Linkage Adjustment

I also have the same problem and have been able to hit the shifter into park with the palm of my hand if I am on level ground. If I am not level and the vehicle has rolled forward, I will need to get out, open the rear hatch and bounce the shocks. This always works. I would just as soon find out how to adjust the linkage. If I figure it out, I'll drop you a line.

I don't own an XJ any longer, but I still think they are the best of all the Jeep products ever made. My XJ was my favorite vehicle in my 50+ years of driving.
So...I stick around and give advice.
