If you're shifting while rolling, and it still won't go into 4LO, try adjusting the linkage.

Maybe the shift lever is hitting the tub.

4 LO is back - right - and back again. Are you pushing the shifter to the right before you try to pull it back again for 4 LO ?

Any body lift on the Jeep such that the shift lever is, as noted, hitting the tub before you can pull far enough into 4Low?

if not - check under the jeep and make sure that the linkages are not full of crud and or pins/springs/retaining bolts are not rusted/missing/sheared off
