My JEEP is stuck in first gear. HELP

My jeep has been downshifting a little rough lately, but today it wouldn't shift into second. I tried everything: I revved up to 5000 rpm, manually shifted to second, neutral to second while moving etc, still no luck. It just will not shift into second. I replaced the output shaft speed sensor and that did not help either. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Few people here will be able to help. You're in the normal cherokee section, you want to ask the GRAND cherokee guys.

Possibilities I can think of are a bad connection, a bad transmission computer, or a bad solenoid.

Current: Black 89 limited, dakota bastard pack, zj coils, 1.5" lift, open cooling swap, bronco 2 carrier, rad fan switch
Rest in Pieces: Red 1990 cherokee dana30/8.25 - v8 zj coils & s10 bastard pack 2.5" lift - 31x10.5r15 tires - v8 zj tierod
