New member,help with shift cable adjustment.

hey guys,new member,although I have been stalking you all for a while...........
I've got an 87cherokee 4dr,4.0 aw4 auto. 280,000,rust free,stock all around.I bought it off original owner for 500$.Its usually just a summer off road fishing buggy.Now,just starting to go through a few things now that the weather is turning around up here in the great white north.Anyways,i should be putting in an order for an xj manual,just haven't yet.So,heres the deal,i'm finding myself shifting into neutral to start the jeep,the shift cable is a little out stretched I guess.Now,is the adjustment made from up top,or down below.thanks guys

Neutral start indicates a nss issue.
Have you tried wiggling the shifter in park while holding the key in start?
Stalking is illegal in Florida btw. And no matter what you say I am still going to keep working in my Jeeps in the nude. Lol
